Shincha: Fresh Japanese Green Tea
Shincha is a special type of Japanese green tea that is harvested in early spring, usually from late April to early May, and is renowned for its fresh and vibrant flavor. It is often referred to as the "first flush" tea, as it is the first tea harvest of the year.
The production process of Shincha is similar to other Japanese green teas, but with some distinct differences. The tea leaves are carefully picked by hand and processed quickly to retain their freshness and delicate flavors. Unlike other green teas, Shincha is not steamed for an extended period but for only about 30 seconds, which helps to preserve the tea's unique flavor and aroma.
The flavor of Shincha is characterized by a combination of sweetness, umami, and a fresh grassy taste. It has a light and delicate texture, with a refreshing aftertaste. The aroma is also distinctive, with a subtle sweetness and a hint of floral notes.
Shincha is highly prized in Japan, and its release is eagerly anticipated each year. It is often only available for a short period, usually from late April to early June, so it is a rare and special treat for tea enthusiasts. Because of its limited availability, Shincha is considered a luxury tea and can be quite expensive.
In addition to its delicious flavor, Shincha is also valued for its health benefits. It is high in antioxidants and contains a variety of vitamins and minerals that are essential for maintaining good health.
Overall, Shincha is a special type of Japanese green tea that is highly regarded for its fresh, vibrant flavor and unique production process. If you have the opportunity to try Shincha, it is definitely worth experiencing this special tea for yourself.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
