Shincha Yakushima 2020 - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Infusion time 30-60 sek
Shincha (the "new tea") is made from the first tender leaves of spring. Shincha Yakushima is steamed for medium duration and is a pure vintage tea from the Yabukita variety. Its taste is characterised by its very present mild elegance. It is cultivated on Yakushima Island by the Fujiwara family.
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".
Though only treated with normal steaming (Chumushi) this early picking is also 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.
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.
