Shincha - The Year's First Buds!
Posted by Kimiko URIU on May 29, 2014 (0 Comments)
We are delighted to be able to offer you a special new tea: this first flush 2014 Shincha from our suppliers from the Kyoto region of Japan! Made from the first spring buds of the tea trees, this tea is typically hand picked in order to preserve the delicate buds.
We were so excited to try it and weren't disappointed!
The brew is pale green and smells heavenly! This tea has a mellow vegetal note, and a delicious finish with a dash of sweetness.
The steeped leaves are bright and soft, as if they were just off the tree.
This tea is truly a joy to drink, but is only available in limited quantities, so order while you can!
