Shincha

Sencha Super Premium (40g/1.41oz)

Shincha! Now available
Now already replaced by Shincha, the first tea of the year. Celebrate first tea harvest of the year with Shincha and enjoy the fresh flavor!

Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellowish green in colour. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh.

Sencha Super Premium is one of our highest-quality Sencha tea. Each leaf is specially selected and carefully picked by our farmers' skilled hands.
Tea leaves which are hand picked have a remarkably enhanced flavor that is far superior to leaves which are harvested by machine. This is because tea trees whose leaves are harvested by hand grow much better than tea trees whose leaves are harvested by machine. (For more information, click here.)

Hibiki-an is able to provide premium quality tea because we are located at Ujitawara, where the misty climate, sloping hills, warm days and cool nights provide an ideal setting for tea plants to thrive. Our Sencha Super Premium is grown closest to the river, where the soil is most fertile. Tea leaves for this item grow at the tea farm in Obuku area where is the birth place of Uji tea and known for the highest grade Sencha producing center. (For more information, click here.)

The features of this tea are the excellent flavor brought about by being hand picked and the perfect astringent aroma which is produced and enhanced by the mountain ravine geography.
Even in Japan, tea leaves of this quality are difficult to find, so we are very pleased to be able to offer you Sencha Super Premium.
