First Picked Tea 2020 Has Arrived -Shincha Season-

May is the season of Shincha, the first picked tea of the year. Now let’s celebrate for Shincha and evaluate the quality in each year!


“Sencha Japan’s hallmark tea, born in Uji, Kyoto”

Dominating over 70% of Japanese tea consumption, sencha (green-leaf tea) is the hallmark tea of Japan. It is created through a process of picking, steaming, kneading, and drying tea leaves that have been grown in natural sunlight. The first-grade tea picked from late April through early May is a top quality product boasting an exquisite taste and fragrance. Fukamushi-cha (deep-steamed green tea) is popular for it’s milder taste, the bitterness having been subdued by a longer steaming process.

・・・・ABOUT RANK・・・・

For the frequently-asked questions about the grade A~S, each grade is mainly defined by “Production area x Tea farmer x Crop quality in the season”.

Tea fairs are held in Japan and the tea grades such as aroma, a liquid color degree of a leaf color, and flavor in each season are decided as comprehensive evaluation by the most professional among professionals. Thus, please understand that the grade A~S can be decided in order from the best for each season. There is no grading system by light-steam, normal-steam, and deep-steam as often mentioned. Instead, normal-steam primarily created by Souen Nagatani is original as green tea. Because a tea processed for deep-steamed tea was not a good quality tea due to a strong taste of bitterness and astringency, a deep-steamed production process was developed. As indicated by the Japanese word “WabiSabi”, the pronounced flavor of green tea (even a plain-flavor appearance like a local cuisine of Kyoto) will be preferred in Uji as a main tea growing center.

As described above, since a tea quality does not depend on production process (e.g. Level of steam), it is not always true that a tea would be good if paying for higher value so determining a tea quality can definitely be difficult without a distinguishing insight for tea contents. It will be the best if our insight with the Uji history can assist you to absolutely select and enjoy a delicious tea.

    I never liked green tea. I always found the taste terrible and bitter when compared to other teas. And even though I have tried to acquire the taste for green tea by trying many different varieties, I have always been unsuccessful until,… I was introduced to this Japanese tea called Wabisabi. It is truly wonderful! It is mildly slightly sweet and aromatic. A truly great green tea!

    This kind of sencha tea makes me relax. I only take twice a day one for the morning and one cup for the evening that’s my daily routine. It is part of my daily apetizing.

    The flavor of the tea itself is very nice and refreshing. Actually I tried many teas but this one is really good. Next time I want to order other Sencha flavor. And this flavor will buy again.
