Shincha is sencha tea that is released immediately after its harvest. Ippodo Shincha has a uniquely fresh, bright, and energetic character. This limited release is only available for a short time in early summer.

Ippodo Tea - Sencha leaves Ippodo Tea - Sencha field

Our Shincha grows in the mountains south of Kyoto, where small changes in the weather day-to-day affect the nuances that develop in the tea leaves each year. As a result, the distinctive character of this year’s Shincha will never be repeated.

Shincha 2022 has a wonderful round umami taste, with plenty of the strength that we expect in fresh-picked sencha.

At first sip, layers of umami develop and expand throughout the mouth. Light astringency pokes through in the background, bringing balance and complexity. In the finish, umami lingers softly on the tongue.

Compared to other years, it’s a clear, accessible Shincha that goes down smooth. We feel confident in recommending it even to those trying Shincha for the first time. At the same time, its complexity and deep, classic Shincha fragrance will be rewarding for those who look forward to enjoying this tea every year.

Compared to our normal selection of sencha, Shincha has a powerful flavor, aroma, and aftertaste. Its youthful strength is refreshing, like a splash of ice-cold water on the face in the morning.

Like Shincha, our regular sencha lineup is also harvested once per year in late spring. We allow the regular senchas to rest until they develop a relaxed, mature flavor. We then blend them with previous harvests to produce a consistent product sold throughout the year.

We love our regular sencha selection for its calm and mature character. We love Shincha for its fleeting, energetic character that invigorates us at the start of summer.
