The 2020 Shincha is here! Shincha ("new tea" in Japanese) is the first harvest of green tea in the spring. Prized in Japan, the fresh tea leaves brew a delicious cup with a grassy aroma and savory, umami taste. Due to the fine pieces of tea leaves, the steeped tea is slightly cloudy and leaves a lingering aftertaste.
