Cultivar: Blended from Samidori and Asahi tea leaves

Hachi Matcha Shincha: comes from the rolling hills of Uji, Kyoto, Japan. Ichibancha, is the first picked tea of the year. Similar to the Beaujolais Nouveau of French wine, the name Shincha celebrates the first tea harvest of the year. Matcha is usually not ground immediately after harvest, instead, it is “rested” for a period of many months to mature. Shincha is the opposite, it’s ground as soon as possible after it has been picked, steamed, dried, de-veined and de-stemmed. 

Just Matcha has been importing Shincha Matcha for 7 years now; it has always been slightly different, and it has always been excellent. The fresh, lively sweet aroma and taste will blow your mind. This limited edition matcha goes quickly and once it's gone, we have to wait another year. See what the buzz is all about. You will not be disappointed.
