There are four main types of Japanese tea--matcha, gyokuro, sencha, and bancha. Ippodo's shincha is sencha tea. The main difference between shincha and the sencha sold throughout the year is its freshness--the amount of time that elapses from when it is picked until it is delivered to the customer.

In order to ensure that the precious yet fleeting grassy flavor and fragrance of shincha is fully appreciated, Ippodo delivers it to customers within about ten days of it being picked. This allows customers to properly savor this fresh spring delight--the result of young buds successfully enduring the cold winter to bring forth new life in spring.

Our regular sencha also has a flavor of its own worthy of appreciation. After being picked, it is allowed to sit for the summer until it acquires a satisfying, mature flavor before being sold. Sencha possesses a delicious flavor that is achieved by allowing its leaves' grassy flavor to reach full maturity.

Make your teatime this spring something to remember by enjoying this delicious product of nature and tender loving care.
