Unveiling the Essence of Shincha: A Celebration of Spring at Mukōh Matcha

As the world transitions from the frosty embrace of winter to the gentle warmth of spring, nature unveils its most exquisite treasures. Among these treasures lies Shincha, the embodiment of freshness, vitality, and the essence of Japan's tea culture.

What is Shincha?

Shincha, meaning "new tea," marks the inception of Japan's tea harvest season. It is the first flush of green tea harvested in early spring, renowned for its tender leaves, vibrant color, and unmatched freshness. At Mukōh Matcha, we pride ourselves on sourcing the finest Shincha, handpicked from the verdant hills of Fukuoka, Japan.

The Shincha Experience

Steeped in tradition and imbued with the spirit of springtime, Shincha offers a sensory journey unlike any other. From the moment you uncork the tea tin to the last sip of your cup, Shincha captivates the senses with its delicate aroma, vibrant green hue, and nuanced flavor profile.

Why Shincha?

  1. Unparalleled Freshness: Shincha's young, tender leaves are bursting with vitality, offering a brew of unparalleled freshness that rejuvenates the body and soul.

  2. Exquisite Flavor: With its subtle sweetness, grassy notes, and hints of umami, Shincha showcases the terroir of its origin, inviting you to savor the essence of spring in every sip.
