Shincha Box 2024 – Refined Selection of First Flush Japanese Green Teas from Shizuoka and Yame

¥10,000

THIS ITEM WILL BEGIN SHIPPING IN LATE MAY.
– 30 boxes only

 

This premium tea assortment box comes with 5 freshly harvested single-origin teas that we found on our journey to tea-producing regions. It includes special teas such as a hand-picked tea and an award-winning tea, some of which are not available individually in our store.

This year’s tea box features teas from not only Shizuoka Prefecture but also a special addition of green tea from the renowned tea-producing region of Yame in Fukuoka Prefecture, southern Japan.

To make your tea time even more special, we are going to add a packet of roasted rice called Genmai to the box. First, try tasting the pure tea itself for 2-3 infusions, then add the roasted rice, which has a toasted aroma, to make your own Genmaicha green tea. You can eat it as it is like rice crackers, and adding some of them to yogurt or ice cream as a topping is a great option.

The set of these teas and the roasted rice will be wrapped in a sheet of Japanese paper with a beautiful poem about tea by Basho Matsuo, hand-written by Akito’s mother, the calligrapher Shinan.
