What is Shincha? In Japan, the tradition of celebrating Shincha is well under way. Shincha is the first tea of the year, also known as Ichibancha. Similar to the Beaujolais Nouveau of French wine, the name Shincha celebrates the first tea harvest of the year.
Tasting Notes:
This unique Matcha is the epitome of spring.  The initial release is reminiscent of a fresh spring day in the garden.  The first taste is grassy, evolving into fresh cut hay while the finish evokes an alcohol like tang that lingers long on the palate.  Surprisingly complex for the first matcha of the year!!
This matcha is in very limited supply and once it is gone it is gone.
Can be enjoyed both hot or cold (and the cold version is not to be missed!).

    I love that you offer this. Found a picture on Instagram and had to get it.
    I wished it came in a nice tin box as shown.
    I might be too nerdy, but I wanna know, which year the shincha is harvested just to make sure I don't get last years shincha, wich would not make any sense... The package doesn't say anything.
    Maybe next time there'll be an organic one. I'd be your No.1 costumer
    Thank you for fast delivery
