Product specificity 商品説明

Shincha (新茶), 'new tea', represents the first month's harvest of Japanese green tea of the year. The first picked tea of the year accumulates plenty of nutrients during the winter and reaches full maturity in spring. Tea at this time of year has a rich, refreshing smell and is full of umami flavor. This tea has a very good balance between astringency and umami.

Japan's Three Major Tea ProducingRegions

Shizuoka 静岡

With more than 40% of Japan's tea production, Shizuoka is the leading tea-producing region. The cities Kikugawa and Kakegawa are also known as the birthplace of deep steamed tea method called Kamairi.

Kagoshima 鹿児島

It is the second largest tea producing region after Shizuoka. The city of Chiran is particularly popular there because you can see Mount Kaimon from the tea plantations.

Kyoto 京都

For 800 years, the traditions and crafts related to tea harvesting have been passed down from generation to generation and are still very present.

Lucky tea for good health

The first picked tea of the year accumulates plenty of nutrients during the winter and reaches full maturity in the soft spring sunshine. Since ancient times, the first picked tea of the year has been said to bring good health and longevity, and is considered auspicious.
