Product - Farmer's Shincha Shigeru #2

Organic Green Tea, Loose Leaf

First Picked Japanese Green Tea Leaves

Comes directly from the renowned and innovative farm owned and operated by Mr. Isao Shimokubo which is located in the southern part of Kagoshima Prefecture. This is an area where there is a large difference between the day and night time temperatures. This difference combined with ample morning and evening moisture from fog results in wonderful tea leaves. Farmer's Shincha is an EU Standard tea meaning it is grown without the use of any pesticides. It has a unique mild taste that conjures a wonderful impression of very green and freshly picked spring green tea leaves. A soft astringent aftertaste appears after the liquid begins to cool. The Shigeru #2 cultivar was developed at the farm.

  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces)
  • Makes approximately 45 to 50 servings of tea

Brewing Suggestions
First Infusion: Add 1 gram of tea per 100 ml of fresh water, or about one tablespoon per potful. Heat the water to 80C (180F) and brew for 90 seconds.


Second Infusion: Brew with the same temperature water as the first infusion but for only a few seconds. Please note that the caffeine content of green tea becomes significantly less after the first steeping.

We brewed the tea as suggested above in our taste tests in order to write the product description. We recommend that you experiment with your own techniques to find your most desired taste profile. For a healthy and invigorating refreshment in hot weather chill the liquid in your refrigerator/freezer to the desired temperature or pour over ice. Our products may be kept in your refrigerator before the package is opened. After opening the package, seal and store it in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Please do not place an opened package back into your refrigerator.
