shizuoka shincha

shizuoka shincha

The Shinchas are here! The Shinchas are here! Each year, the first harvest of Japanese Green Tea is cause for celebration in Japan and among green tea lovers around the world. All winter long the plants have been storing up nutrients to fight through the spring frost and sprout the first buds of the year. These precious leaves are extremely rare (especially outside of Japan) and widely considered to be the finest green teas in the world. This year Adagio is proud to offer a very limited supply of premium, deep-steamed Shincha from the Shizuoka prefecture.

Steep at 170° for 2 minutes.
