About Kinezuka Family’s 2014 Shincha

This year’s shincha is said to be good in quality because…

Every year, we fear the damage by a late frost but fortunately, hardly any damage was reported this year.
However, if the low temperature continues when the tea buds are still at its growing stage it could cause the buds to stop growing.

From April 13 to 22 the climate was rainy and cloudy. We even had to put on a winter jacket in the mornings and evening because of the cool temperature.

Due to this, we see a delay in the growing of tea buds, but at the same time, the buds are slowly growing which is likely to result in a delicious tasting tea.
