Meet the fresh batch of Tomizawa Tea Garden Shincha, harvested in 2024 and certified organic by JAS. Enjoy pure, natural flavors with every sip, knowing you're supporting sustainable farming practices.

From the fields of family-operated tea farm, Tomizawa Tea Garden, a shincha shaded for about 2 weeks before early May harvest (making it a kabusecha). The Okumidori tea cultivar has been quite popular in recent years for its strong natural umami flavor (enhanced by the shading) and deep green color.

As a steamed tamaryokucha (or guricha), the leaves are not rolled into straight needles as you would see with sencha, but rather left slightly curled by skipping the last rolling step.

Steeping Notes

  • Tea: 3-5 grams
  • Time: 1 minute
  • Water temperature: 60C/140F degrees
  • Water amount: 1 cup
  • Resteep at hotter temperature up to 3 times. We recommend the second steep to be quick -- in and out, since the leaves are primed for extraction.
  • Use hotter temperature & longer steeping time for a more astringent tea, use cold water or ice steeping for a very sweet tea.
