Harvest for Shincha (new tea) will take place soon and we want to share the current picture our tea filed.

We are very excited to see the tea trees are putting out their new buds covering the whole tea field with beautiful green.  You can see the transformation from the pictures.

Tea leaves cannot be picked when they are wet because it will affect the steaming process and eventually the flavor of green tea. Within a couple of days if the weather is good and the tea leaves are ready for the harvest, our farmers will start picking the very first buds.

Your Shincha is coming to you soon!
