Organic Shincha, Spring First Flush Green Tea
Hachimanjyu: Organic Shincha, Spring First Flush Green Tea (Kuriwatase & Saemidori)
US$24.99
Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

Cultivars: Kuriwatase, Saemidori.
Harvest: Early April, 2016.
Steaming: Asamushi, or lightly steamed. This results a leaf that is kept more intact than longer steaming, and therefore results in a clearer, liquid that extracts more slowly from the leaf for multiple steepings. This type of steaming is usually reserved for higher quality leaf.

Steeping recommendation: We recommend the warm water steeping method. Steep it in a small amount at low temperature to enjoy the umami flavors more distinctly like gyokuro, then again at higher temperatures to release more flavors.
