This year Haruyo & Shigeru Morimoto have prepared a wonderful Shincha tea . This 2016 Morimoto Shincha tea is a blend of the shaded tea plants Yutaka Midori, Yabukita and unshaded Saki Midori. The result is a Shincha tea with subtle grassy notes, spicy nuances, exquisite sweetness and a very fresh, slightly fruity scent .  
Haruyo told us that they did not heat the tea leaves quite as strongly for this years Shincha, giving the tea more 'fresh leaf' taste.

Shincha teas are something quite special - they are taken from the first harvest in Japan . Harvested usually (depending on weather conditions) in late April / early May.
