NEW TEA 2023

The long-awaited new tea season has arrived! This precious tea can only be tasted once a year and is made from only the first tender new leaves grown in 2023.
Compared to leaves plucked later in the year, young, soft new leaves - known as shincha in Japanese - contain fewer bitter and astringent catechins and caffeine, and more theanine, a component that adds both flavor and sweetness, giving this shincha tea a refreshing and crisp taste.
Enjoy this chance to experience freshly picked, super-fresh new tea!

Net Weight: 1.76 oz (50g)
Ingredients: Authentic Japanese single-origin tea. Loose-leaf OKUMIDORI produced by Goda-san, not blended.

Farmer: Mr. Atsushi Goda

Majored in space engineering at Kyushu's leading technical university. After graduation, he took over as the fifth generation of his family to manage Gōda Seicha, which has been in operation since the Meiji era in the late 19th century. Managing the entire process, from growing tea leaves to packaging, at his tea farm, unique flavors are created through his inquisitive attitude and uncompromising craftsmanship.

 

Origin: Yame City, Fukuoka, Japan 

Japan is made up of four major islands. Kyushu is the name of the island located in the southwestern part of the country, and it is home to Fukuoka Prefecture, the most populous prefecture in the region. In the rolling hills near the center of Yame, beautiful tea farms sprawl all through the area, attracting visitors and tourists with its breathtaking view.

 

Variety: OKUMIDORI | おくみどり

Okumidori, produced by Gōda Seicha, is characterized by more flavorful tea leaves and a stronger sweetness than conventional okumidori tea varieties. Its strongly distinctive flavor is one-of-a-kind. It is achieved through a fully integrated process from soil cultivation to packaging despite the industry-standard practice of outsourcing parts of the development. LEARN MORE

 

*Packaging: 

Our steel containers are crafted in Japan, and most of the manufacturing is done by hand. An airtight double-layered cap maintains the quality of the tea leaves. The containers are reusable; after purchasing this product, you can fill it with tea refills for many years to come. As the container is handmade, the color/patina of the container may change.

All products are vacuum nitrogen-filled by each farmer by hand to ensure that freshness and aroma do not degrade during shipping.

 

 

*Shipping

Each order we receive is shipped from Japan via Japan Post EMS which is an airmail service with track-and-trace. Currently, it takes about 10 to 20 days to arrive in the US from Japan. 

If you do not receive your package due to not being at home or for any reason, and your package has exceeded the holding period set by the shipping company, the package is likely to be returned to us. In which case we will cancel your order and refund you the cost of the product(s) that you ordered, but please note that we cannot refund you the shipping fee.
