Get Ready: Shincha 2022

Your guide to the full Shincha experience

What is Shincha?

  • A limited batch of sencha released right after harvest each year, Ippodo Shincha is powerful, fresh, green, and fragrant. You only have once chance per year to experience its freshness.

Just how fresh is fresh?

  • Ippodo’s Shincha is crafted from tea leaves that were growing in a field only a few days prior to packaging. We ship it as soon as possible from Japan to our storage in the USA, after which it is immediately shipped to those who have made their reservations in advance.

Taste Shincha’s pure energy.

  • Tea tree leaves shoot up with an incredible life force as soon as the weather starts getting warmer each spring. That life force translates directly into the cup; when you taste Shincha, you’ll be vitalized by its raw energy.

Gaze at its sparkling surface.

  • A cup of Shincha shines with luster on the surface, as one sign of a fresh sencha tea. This visual treat comes from the soft, translucent “furs” that grow on the underside of young tea leaves. (Don’t worry, they don’t have any effect on the tea’s texture!)

Breathe in Shincha’s aroma.

  • After brewing, make sure to open the kyusu to smell the Shincha leaves directly. Green, powerful, sunny—these are some of the words that come to mind. Shincha’s precious aroma only lasts a short time after harvest.

Feel its delicate tea leaves.

  • Go ahead, feel the tea leaves after they’ve opened up. You’ll be surprised at just how soft and delicate they are. This softness is another a sign of our Shincha’s freshness.

Reserve your taste of Shincha 2022

For those who love sencha and aromatic Ippodo teas, we recommend experiencing Shincha’s fresh energy while you have the chance. Shincha is only available until it sells out.

Shincha will ship depending on the date of harvest. We expect it to arrive in stock around the end of May this year. Reserved orders will ship immediately after the tea is in stock.

Available until April 30th
