Review To put this in context, I'm one of those people that looks forward to the Shincha harvest every year. Sencha is always best right after the harvest. There is nothing like it. It's so green, fresh and energizing. If you have only ever had green tea in teabags from your local grocery, then you are really in for a pleasant surprise with any of Hibiki-an's green teas, but especially the Shincha. According to Japanese tradition, Sencha is best right after harvest and Gyokuro is best after it has aged for a few months. But I had never even heard of Shincha Gyokuro, so I wanted to give it a try. Well, it is fantastic! It is so mellow and balanced, yet extremely green and fresh. Not at all abrasive. I would describe it as smooth. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves green tea. This is one of my favorite teas from Hibiki-an, along with their Organic Sencha Premium and Matcha Pinnacle.
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
