2024 Shipment Schedule

  • April shipment - A small amount of tea from the southernmost regions (Yakushima, Kagoshima, etc) is harvested in early and mid April and we will be able to ship it by the end of April.
  • May shipment - Most teas become available in May, and will ship by the end of May
  • June shipment - Late June shipments are primarily the highest grade sencha and gyokuro which may be released later due to more carefully processing or longer growing seasons (especially for fields at high elevation).
  • Your order will ship as soon as all items in the order becomes available. You may cancel at anytime before the order ships, and reorder, but cancelling may result in a refund processing time of 1-2 weeks. Please take careful note the shipment dates.
  • If you plan to purchase various products, it is best to aggregate into multiple orders according to the shipment month (see product or variant titles). 


About Shincha - First Flush Spring Green Tea

There are several definitions of what is considered "shincha". The widest definition refers to any leaf in the first two months or so after harvest (when the leaves are still "new"). General use of the term refers more specifically to the spring harvest, and the first two months or so afterwards. This means the same spring tea called shincha in May is no longer called shincha in August because it is no longer new.

However, many farmers will harvest extra early for particularly young, tender leaves creating LIMITED EDITION tea products. These have several names: hashiri - "run", as "in run to the fields now to harvest the leaves", hatsutsumi - "first picking" or the farmer's very first harvest of the spring season, hachijyu hachiya - "88th night" referring to the 88th day of spring in the old lunar calendar, tea picked on this day is said to be the best and brings good fortune for the year (this year it is May 1st).

The period during which shincha is available is short for most vendors, but since we are aggregating producers from throughout Japan, the harvest of tea leaves occur from the beginning of April all the way until July.
