Shincha literally translates to New and is called so because it is the first months harvest of Sencha. During winter, the tea plants store up nutrients and as a result, this first harvest has the purest flavor as well at the most nutrients among all other harvests. Very difficult to find outside of Japan, this tea is prized for its aromatic flavors, amino acid content, as well as its vegetal brew that only contains a light bitterness.
