Ippodo Tea

Ippodo Tea Uji Shincha - 50g New Harvest Sencha 2024


Product Specs:
Green Tea

Each spring, as the weather warms, the tea fields in the mountains south of Kyoto come alive. The tea plants, having stored energy over the long winter, begin to sprout vibrant green buds. This year, Ippodo's Shincha is a delightful blend of fresh new sencha harvests, creating a tea that's well-balanced, flavorful, and vivid. Its fragrance is sunny, fresh, and vegetal, while the umami flavor is balanced by a crisp astringency and a subtle mineral-like quality. The beautiful vibrant green leaves and bright golden brew color make this year's Shincha a visual and flavorful treat. Compared to Ippodo's regular sencha, Shincha boasts a powerful flavor, aroma, and aftertaste, providing a refreshing splash like ice-cold water on a hot summer morning.

Shincha is limited and only available each year at this time, so don't miss the chance to taste it!
