The new harvest 2023 (Shincha) is now available. Our New Harvest 2023 is from Shizuoka, Japan.
Shincha is the very first harvest of the year and is carefully processed to leave the natural grassy flavour and fresh aroma. Shincha is the tea equivalent of the Beaujolais Nouveau wines of France.
If you would like to enjoy a sweeter flavour, please use lower water temperature and infuse for a little bit longer.
If you would like to enjoy the fresh aroma, please use higher water temperature and infuse for a shorter time.
The higher grades, like our Sencha Premium, have a more delicate flavour profile and is more full-bodied, sweet, and smoother than most Senchas.
50g bag = 50 cups
Serving size: 60ml
Sencha contains a high level of Vitamin C, which retains in the hot tea thanks to the presence and high level of Catechin. Premium has a higher L- Theanine content of our Sencha products.
Our brewing instruction is standard; if you are the first time trying Premium Sencha New 2022 please start a shorter brewing time such as 10 seconds and find out your preference. As with all teas, the longer you leave it to brew, the stronger the flavour will get.
