Handmade Japanese Green Tea Temomi Shincha

At our tea factory in Shizuoka, one of the most premium seasonal green teas, “Temomi Shincha” , was just produced. We want to share the photos of making Temomi Shincha with you.

Temomi Shincha is one of the most premium and rare Japanese green teas. The word “Temomi” means hand-rolled. From the meticulous picking of the best young tea leaves to the final process of kneading the leaves to fine needles, the whole practice is done by the hands of elite Temomi masters.

Making Temomi Shincha requires a considerable amount of time from practitioners of great skill and experience. A method used in Japan centuries ago, the Temomi technique is vanishing due to the adoption of today’s machines to mass-produce tea.
Here at Sugimoto America, we undertake the responsibility of preserving this traditional art to provide you this precious tea.
  • The flavor is thick, dense, and intense, but without an edge
  • An amazing aftertaste like none other
  • The tea takes an elegant clear-green hue
  • Because of its profound flavor, Temomi Shincha is consumed in small amounts, very much akin to enjoying a rich and strong flavored espresso

Here’s the photos of making Temomi Shincha 2012.
