Harvested in April, the Shincha (New tea) maintains its unique freshness for several months.
The leaves of this high-grade sencha are harvested at the end of April in the Chiran area (Kagoshima). This sencha is a blend of two cultivars, yabukita and yukata midori. Right after being harvested, leaves are deep-steamed to allow umami and sweetness to fully bloom. You should quickly brew this tea for only 45 seconds. With next to no bitterness to taste, this sencha has a typical perfumed taste and a very fresh and pleasing aroma. Thanks to its low caffeine levels, you can enjoy this sencha all day long and its good amounts of theanine will help you relax and focus.
