drank Hashiri Shincha by Den's Tea
280 tasting notes

I am SO glad I pre-ordered.
Had another cup this morning (well, make that 5 steepings of 3oz each, or 2 American-sized cups). It was delicious and worth every penny. I hope he manages to get his hashiri from the same farm next year.

But you won’t believe it – I just checked his website today, and he is ALREADY OUT!
He has 2 more Shinchas that just arrived as well…looking forward to trying the other one I ordered (Shincha Houryoku, which is a fukamushi) in the next week!

Yes, I am glad I pre-ordered mine, as well! How is/was the Shincha Houryoku? Hashiri Shincha is the only one I ordered so I am interested in reading reviews about the others.

I haven’t opened it yet, but I am going to soon, and will definitely review. (I have too many green teas open right now!)

If I don’t manage to review it before he runs out of those other shinchas, I figured out something cool…(or if you run out of the Hashiri Shincha and want to get more!) you can still get some from the company Tea Trekker. Based on the picture and description of the Japanese green teas they have on their website, it seems very likely they are carrying the exact same ones (not quite as good of a price, but that’s obvious since they are a reseller).

Anyway, I am about to run out of Sakura Sencha and am considering getting it from them, too, since Den’s won’t have it for a long time.
