Gokujyo Uji Shincha Japanese is a first picking Uji tea; it is considered to be the most valuable and highest quality Uji tea. This tea is grown at Yuyadani in Ujitawara known for producing the highest grade Shincha. Its misty climate, sloping hills, warm days and cool nights create an ideal environment for producing distinctive aroma and excellent mellow flavor of high quality Shincha. Enjoy the superb harmony of refreshing aroma, flavor, and amazing taste of this special tea. The dry leaves smell wonderful, it is full of aromatic pure sweetness and grassy freshness. Once steeped, you will taste sweet umami, with a vegetal note. We highly recommend multiple infusions!
