2010 First Harvest Shincha Now Available for Pre-Order…
Every year, O-Cha.com offers our customers special deals on first harvest shincha and this year is no different. The savings in this offer are not available to the public at large and we only offer this to our newsletter and Facebook subscribers.
What Exactly Is “Shincha?”
Customers often get confused by the term “shincha.” As you may be aware, there are 3 to 4 harvests of green tea per year, with the first harvest producing the most superior green tea. Regular customers also know the importance of freshness when it comes to green tea. Therefore, it would be natural to assume that the best green tea would be that which comes from the first harvest, immediately after it was harvested. In fact, fresh, first harvest green tea is available thorughout the year. Japanese green tea growers have developed methods for cold storage that allow them to release green tea from the first harvest throughout the year as needed. This is one reason why your purchases from O-Cha.com are extremely fresh – the green tea is pulled from cold storage for final processing within a very short time from when you order it, as we request it.
Green tea farmers place most emphasis on this very first harvest, and most of this is indeed placed into cold storage for release throughout the year as requested. However, a small portion of this first harvest green tea never enters cold storage – it is packaged immediately and put up for sale. This small portion is known as “shincha.” In short, all shincha is first harvest, but not all first harvest is shincha. Also important to note, there may be a shincha version of a particular green tea, and a non-shincha version of that very same tea released later in the year.
Shincha Versus non-Shincha…
There are some differences between shincha and non-shincha. For starters, it is true – shincha green tea is absolutely the freshest green tea one can buy at any time of the year as it is packaged immediately upon harvest. It tends to be bolder than it’s cold-storaged counterpart. When brewing shincha, be sure to brew it for a shorter length of time and at a slightly lower temperature. Some people prefer shincha, while others find the aged (we’re talking months) green teas placed under cold storage to be a bit more to their liking. Regardless, legions of green tea fans eagerly wait in anticipation for the release of shincha every year!
