Product information "Shincha Classic 2024 - Organic Japanese Green Tea"

Dosierung 1 TL (gestr.-geh.)

Temperature 123 55-70°

Infusions 4

Brewing time 30-60 sek

Cold infusions

The Yutaka Midori cultivar gives the Shincha Classic its familiar fresh green aroma and rich colour. The combination with a proportion of the exquisite cultivar Sae Midori results in a full-bodied, smooth flavour with fine umami, a light fruitiness and a subtle astringency.


Special features

Shincha - the ‘new tea’ heralds the start of the tea year every spring. The first tea from the fine, particularly aromatic leaf tips, which are harvested in the subtropical climate of Kagoshima as early as mid-April.  In order to capture the fresh flavour in the best possible way, shincha is dried a little more lightly in the final processing stage than is usual for sencha.
Cultivars:
 Kabusecha is a green tea that is produced by shading the tea plants for 7-10 days before harvesting, which results in a high content of chlorophyll and other active ingredients and a low level of bitterness. Their characteristic ‘shade flavour’ is called ooika. 
Early harvests such as Shincha Yume also have a particularly high theanine content, which is noticeable in the sweet flavour.


Preparation

We recommend an infusion temperature of around 60-65°C. Allow the first infusion to infuse for about 1 minute. A few seconds are then enough to extract the flavour from the leaves. For the last infusion, you can increase the infusion time again to tease out all the flavour. If the tea still turns out stronger than desired, the flavour intensity can be slightly adjusted by adding a little more water. 
Deep steamed early harvests are particularly suitable for cold infusions (mizudashi). Even with cold water, Shincha Yume develops a particularly silky texture and a refreshing clarity of flavour after just 5 minutes of infusion. The sweet theanine notes also come into their own particularly well, as the bitter substances do not dissolve as much in cold water.

Storage

To preserve the tea's valuable flavours and ingredients as much as possible, please close the bag tightly and store it in a cool, dark place in the fridge or freezer.

grasiger, lecker aromatischer Grüntee

herrlich schmeckender Grüntee - das Beste, was ich bisher an Grüntees getrunken habe

herber, vollmundig grasiger Grüntee mit weichem Abgang

Dieser Grüntee ist sehr gut, er schmeckt erst bitter aber dann entwickelt er ein komplexes Aroma. Er schmeckt grasig und nach Heu. Ich denke an eine Wiese im Frühnebel wenn ich einen Schluck nehme.

Cold brewer "ooika"
Item No. 42200 The Ooika- Cold brewer for the preparation of drip tea can be used with hot OR cold water. However, it is ideal especially for cold brew green tea highlighting the rich yet sweet green fragrance of high quality Kabusecha, known amongst tea-connoisseurs as Ooika. The Cold brewer consists of two glass vessels which are connected with a rubber base with a small opening, which lets the water drip into the stainless steel strainer underneath and then into the lower vessel. To prepare your cold drip Green Tea measure 2-3 teaspoons of tea into the sieve (make sure the tea covers the bottom of the strainer evenly) and fill the upper vessel with 600 to 900ml of water. You can also use ice cubes to make a Kouridashi-brew, either letting them melt slowly to drip over the tea or just add them to your tea once its ready. The preparation takes between 25 and 45 minutes. You can adjust the speed by pushing the little knob deeper into the rubber base to slow the water flow or pulling it back out to speed it up. Best suited for this type of preparation is deep steamed (fukamushi) Kabusecha from an early picking, as these will best release the aroma and all the valuable ingredients of the tea but also the least astringency. Our Tip: Serve the cold drip tea in wine-glasses to surprise your dinner guests with a tasty refreshing alternative to alcohol!

Aracha Shincha 2024 - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Aracha Shincha brings the uniquely green, fresh Ooika flavour of the Aracha raw tea to Europe. With its wild, intensely green and grassy scent of freshly harvested tea fields, it conjures up the tea spring directly in our cups and is the closest to the original flavour of the tea plant.Special Features Shincha (the ‘new tea’) is made from the first tender leaves of spring - a vintage tea from the first early plucking in April, which surprises with its fresh flavour every year. Aracha is a partially processed green tea, which is reflected in its original, natural flavour. When tasting the raw teas directly after harvesting, they are brewed in particularly high doses and hot in order to savour the special characteristics of the tea. The higher infusion temperature (around 70°C) also brings out the flavour of this tea particularly well - let yourself be whisked away to the tea gardens of Kagoshima with the intense grassy aroma of freshly steamed tea leaves! cultivars:Yutaka Midori from the KEIKO organic farm in Kawanabe (Chiran) Asanoka from the Komaki brothers (Minami-Satsuma)Yabukita from the KEIKO organic farm in Kawanabe (Chiran)This year's Aracha is again composed of three cultivars, which are perfectly matched with their different flavours and aromas - grassy with a lively spiciness. Like many KEIKO teas, this tea is an intensively steamed tea (Fukamushi-cha, 100 - 120 seconds steaming time). The gentle steaming opens the leaf pores and the extracts are released from the tea leaf into the water more easily and quickly. This can be recognised by the deep green tea colour in the cup and the yield of the tea. Early harvests such as Aracha Shincha also have a particularly high theanine content, which is noticeable in the sweet flavour. Aracha is not yet ‘sorted’ as a raw tea - it therefore still contains some larger leaves as well as very fine bits of the leaves. PreparationTo emphasise the fresh fragrance, the infusion temperature can be set a little higher at 65-75°C.. Intensely steamed early harvests are particularly suitable for cold infusions (mizudashi). Even with cold water, Shincha Classic develops a particularly silky texture and a refreshing clarity after just a few minutes of infusion. The sweet theanine notes also come into their own particularly well, as the bitter substances do not dissolve as much in cold water. Storage Please note that Shincha Aracha is a raw tea and less dried than all other KEIKO teas. Aracha should therefore be enjoyed fresh and not stored for too long - we have set the best before date for this tea at 6 months from production here in Diepholz; we store it frozen! We therefore recommend closing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dark place in the fridge or freezer to preserve the tea's valuable flavours and ingredients as much as possible.

Soshun - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Soshun, "early spring" is from early first picking in the middle to end of April. It has a wonderfully rich, complex and sweet fragrance and a velvety harmonious taste. The cup is a luminous green. This tea is an unforgettable pleasure not only for connoisseurs. Kabusecha Kabusecha is a green tea for which the tea plants are shaded, thus forming a high content of chlorophyll and other active ingredients and at the same time little bitter substances. Their characteristic "shade aroma" is called "ooika".   Fukamushicha   Like many KEIKO teas, this is an intensively steamed tea (Fukamushi-cha, 100 - 120 seconds steaming time). Due to the gentle steaming process, the leaf pores open and the extracts from the tea leaf reach the water more easily and quickly. This can be recognized by the deep green tea colour in the cup and the yield of the tea - with top qualities up to 4 infusions are possible! Cold Brew       Intensively steamed early pickings are also particularly suitable for cold infusions (Mizudashi or Cold Brew). By infusing the leaves with cold water you will get an intensive and refreshing tea after only a few minutes. Since the bitter substances do not dissolve as strongly in cold water, the sweet aromas of the Kabusecha are especially noticeable. Storage In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.
