Tea Info Shelf 

In spring Shincha becomes a buzzing word for Japanese tea. But what is it? Translated from Japanese it means new tea. While Shincha could refer to new tea of any season, it is known the most for spring teas. Packaged immediately after harvesting, Shincha is appreciated for its fresh green flavor and young aroma. While Shincha period is not strictly defined, it starts around April/May and Shincha sales usually end a few weeks later. Obubu's Shincha has just been made and you can try this years flavors below.
