Each spring, as the weather starts to warm, the tea fields in the mountains south of Kyoto begin to awaken. The tea plants that huddled up, storing their energy and nutrients over the cold, long winter, begin to put out tiny green buds. Over the next month, these buds begin to grow, reaching up and up for the wide blue sky. When the time is right, tea farmers get busy harvesting the spry new leaves.

At Ippodo, we blend selected fresh new sencha harvests to produce our Shincha tea each year.

Shincha 2024 is well-balanced, flavorful, and vivid. Its fragrance is the most vibrant in recent memory- sunny, fresh, green, and vegetal. In the cup, its plentiful umami is balanced by a tinge of crisp astringency. In the undertones, it has a mineral-like, slate-like quality that adds a nice structure to the experience. Finally, beautiful vibrant green leaves and a bright golden brew color make this year’s Shincha a visual treat as well.

Ippodo Tea - Sencha leaves Ippodo Tea - Sencha field

For first-timers, this year is a classic introduction to Shincha, full of energy and green freshness. Longtime sencha fans will enjoy its verdant fragrance, balanced taste, and complexity over many brews.

New this year, these pour over style teabags are fit for a quick cup of fragrant Shincha for one. To use, tear open the top of the bag, and place the hooks over the side of your mug. Slowly pour over hot water over the leaves, and enjoy how Shincha's vibrant, green fragrance wafts up from the leaves. After a minute, take the teabag out, and enjoy.
