Product - Shibushi Shincha Miyabe

First Picked Shade Grown Japanese Green Tea Leaves

Shincha Miyabe is an EU Standard tea meaning it is grown without the use of any pesticides. It is also shade grown for seven days prior to harvest to enhance the flavor and health benefits. The tea has a very pleasing balanced flavor of subtle astringency, sweetness and vegetal hints. It is highly desirable for those seeking a very drinkable smooth tasting Japanese tea. Shincha Miyabe is an expert blend of the Sae Midori and Yutaka Midori cultivars.

Our highly regarded supplier from the Shibushi area of Kagoshima Prefecture is one of the few in all of Japan that harvests from its own tea fields and operates its own factory. The entire tea making process is expertly managed from start to finish.

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.
