Organic green tea Shincha Asatsuyu 50g

289

18,20 € tax incl.

Description : Shincha means new tea in Japanese. It is a Japanese green tea harvested during the first flush. This seasonal tea is regarded as the finest harvest of the year and is highly sought after for its unique freshness and its gentle flavor that differ each year.

Also known as “tennen gyokuro” or natural gyokuro, Asatsuyu is a delicate and high-quality variety. Difficult to cultivate, this tea requires a lot of skills and is rarely cultivated, even in Japan. This variety has a sweet flavor and a well developed umami taste. Tea bushes are covered with a tarp before harvesting to enhance the sweetness and the umami taste of the tea. The leaves are steamed to bring out their sweetness, umami as well as a soft and refreshing astringency.

Flavor : For the first infusion, Asatsuyu tea has a cloudy aspect with a few lasting leaves and a vibrant green. It has a mellow and lively flavor balanced between sweetness and umami. For the second infusion, the tea brightens to a vivid green color with a sweet and fresh flavor.

Way of use : 4g for 100ml of water. For the first brew infuse for 1mn20 at 70°C. For the second infusion, infuse for 15sc at 80°C. 

Ingredients : Organic green tea Saemidori leaves

Preservation : Keep in a dry, cool place, away from sunlight. After opening, close well, keep refrigerated and consume within 1 month.

Origin : Kirishima, Japan

Sincha is also known for being rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids such as L-theanine. Indeed, as the winter comes to an end, tea bushes are packed with nutrients accumulated for months whereas following harvests will have less time to store that amount of nutrients. Shincha is prepared the way a sencha is, although sencha is produced from following harvests, but has a richer, fresher and more intense aroma, a pleasant umami flavour, hints of sweetness and a long-lasting and refreshing taste.

This item is available in pre-order and will be dispatched from May 26 ! Other products of a same order will be dispatched at the same date. 

Our shincha are from Kirishima, southern Japan and are cultivated by the third generation of a family producer of organic green tea. Kirishima’ environment is rich in clear water and pure and unpolluted air, perfect for cultivating tea. Striving to produce the finest organic tea, our producer established their own tea plantation deep within the mountains to avoid contamination by flying pesticides used by other producers. To feed the soil, they only use homemade compost and organic fertilizer. Being passionate about tea for generations, they work hard all year long in tea plantations to monitor climate change, evolution of tea growth and much more. As a true leader of organic tea cultivation in Japan, they deliver a thorough and meticulous work to produce the finest tea, such as manually removing one by one any insect from the tea bushes !
