About Mebuki Shincha| 芽吹新茶
Description: Our very first 2021 Yame release - Mebuki is bursting with freshness and aroma - a true celebration of Spring. This 100% Saemidori Shincha brews up with a piercing green color. Mebuki presents itself as a bit more reserved when it comes to the savory qualities of Yame tea. We love the balance of Mebuki - sweet and smooth with a hint of nuttiness. We couldn't be more excited to share this beautiful tea. Truly Springtime in a cup.
What is so special about this tea? A welcome treat - the very first of 2021 Shincha - Harvested April 11th. Shincha is essentially Sencha that is enjoyed for a short period - directly after harvest each Spring. You can think of it as the Beaujolais nouveau of Tea - the first release and a celebration of the season ahead. Shincha is coveted for higher levels of aromatic compounds - specifically plant alcohols and Esters that will, no matter how well stored the tea is, slowly fade with time. So enjoying shortly after harvest is a joy that can only be had once a year. We love
Recommended for: Any sencha lover should try this tea - a perfect example of the Spring freshness of Shincha.
