Just received my order of Farmers Shincha for this year and am very happy with it. A good, full, excellent, robust Shincha! I have always enjoyed minimally processed teas and absolutely love the rustic, earthy style of this particular offering. The 2012 Farmers Shincha provides an uplifting, bracing and comforting cup. Having been on the tea bush only a few weeks ago (or less) before finding their way into my pot, it is easy to literally taste the essence of the land where these leaves come from. A fine tea, and certainly recommended to anyone before the supply runs out.
