About Hachiju Hachiya Shincha | 八十八夜新茶

Hachiju Hachiya means "88th night" refers to the 88th day of spring - as counted from Risshun on February 3rd. This is a celebratory day as it marks the beginning of the tea season. This tea was literally harvested on the very day, May 1st, 2020. This shincha purposely undergoes very light processing to bring out the fresh almost ripe nature of the new spring tea bushes. A piercing freshness and mellow sweetness combine in perfect harmony. We only have this tea for about one month a year and every year we always say the same thing - "Shincha season is the best time of the year". We are so happy to share this piece of spring with you all.

Recommended for: Lovers of deep green, fragrant sencha. While lighter in body than most Yame Sencha, Hachiju Hachiya is a delicacy one can only enjoy for a short period. Savor it but drink up - the aroma is as fleeting as the season.
