Shincha shipping has begun!

May 16, 2012

This year’s shincha tea shipping has begun!

The low temperatures at the beginning of spring has delayed the start by about a week, but we’ve started! Our apologies for delaying the shipment! We know you want your tea!

The last tea was harvested on May 13th. We hope you will enjoy through the 2012 shincha tea the combination of the burst of life that comes with the new leaves under the spring sun and the hearts of the producers here in Japan.

Note: overseas shipments begin after domestic shipments are fulfilled, and so start at the end of May

春先の低温で収穫が1週間以上も遅れてのスタートでした。そのため、例年よりも新茶のお届けが遅くなってしまい、ごめんなさい。

5月13日に最後の茶園の収穫を終えました。春の日差しの下、太陽に向かって伸びる新芽の息吹と私たち作り手の心を、新茶を通してどうぞお楽しみください。
