About Kirishima 100 Shincha | 霧島新茶

Description: A rich and luxurious shincha from the famed Kirishima district of Kagoshima. This tea was selected for its intense color and unusually rich profile - especially for shincha. This is pinnacle grade Kagoshima tea from an award winning producer and reflects the ultimate in what tea blending can achieve.

What is so special about this tea? Kagoshima will soon overtake Shizuoka as the largest producer of tea in Japan by prefectural output. The majority of this tea comes from the Chiran area - slightly south of Kirishima. Kirishima is lesser-known - especially outside of Japan. Known for producing high-grade Sencha and Kabuse, Kirishima is a spot you should definitely know about. We love what this tea maker is doing - coaxing out incredible flavors while still offering a wonderful value. This sets up Sumire as a perfect daily drinker for those of you who love deep green, fragranced, aromatic teas.

Recommended for: A rich, decadent shincha
