During the shincha or new tea season (April - June) this tea is used for Hachimanjyu’s popular shincha product.

  • Ingredients: Green tea
  • Cultivars: Kuritawase, Asatsuyu.
  • 2020 Harvest: April 6, 2020
  • Region: Yakushima Island, Kagoshima, Japan
  • 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.
  • Organic certification: Note to wholesale customers, this product is grown and processed to JAS organic certification. Please contact us for proper organic export documentation. Minimum purchase may be required. 


Steeping recommendation

We recommend the warm water steeping method for this Yakushima Shincha. Steep it in a small amount at low temperature to enjoy the umami flavors more distinctly, then again at higher temperatures to release more flavors.

  • First steeping
    • Tea: 5 grams
    • Time: 90 seconds
    • Water: 65C/150F degrees, 200 ml
  • Second steeping
    • Time: 10 seconds (the tea is primed at this point so will extract flavor immediately)
    • Water: 80C/176F degrees, 200 ml
  • Third & fourth steeping
      • Time: 30-60 seconds
      • Water: 90C/195F degrees, 200 ml
