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. The brilliant, dark green, needle-like leaves of this incredible specialty deliver a fragrant aroma, translucent cup and a flavor profile that is surprisingly full bodied yet light, and sweet on the finish.

Steep at 170° for 2 minutes.
