Premium Shincha Green Tea

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

The Ujitawara region is a scenic and historic place where the world’s love affair with Japanese green tea first began. Our Premium Shincha Green Tea is our signature tea for this special area, carefully selected for its smooth, mellow flavour, astringent aroma and traditional yellowish colour.

Shincha is also the name of the first tea harvest of the year, further reinforcing this tea’s premium grade credentials. The Ujit region, where it’s cultivated, is truly a magnificent place worthy of pilgrimage for tea drinkers. With mountainous ravines, misty valleys and serene plateaus, it offers an environment that has the perfect conditions for growing green tea.

From its soil rich in minerals, tea trees have been grown and harvested for centuries. It wasn’t long before Shincha green tea found its way into forming part of Japan’s culture and national identity. Ever since, both paupers and emperors alike have indulged in its refreshing taste and perceived health benefits.

Green tea is drunk in Japan almost as a form of daily medicine. Along with helping you to feel calm and relaxed, green tea has been linked with benefits for the heart, lower cholesterol, healthier teeth and even a boost in brain power. Our Shincha Traditional Green Tea is no exception when it comes to healthy types of green tea, with it being low in caffeine and traditionally drunk without milk.

If you’ve yet to experience the refreshing delights of Japanese tea then our Premium Shincha Green Tea is an excellent gateway. Deeply refreshing in taste and relaxing, we’re certain that once you take a sip and step through the doorway that you’ll never look back. Instead, you’ll be able to embark on a wonderful journey of exploration for the senses into what the world of Japanese tea has to offer.

Fukamushi Green Tea is cultivated and picked early in the season around spring time. Its ripeness when it is plucked is evident from its distinctly grassy aroma and rich shade of green. Like all Shincha teas, Fukamushi Green Tea is grown in the foothills of the Ujitawara mountains. Its within wide ravines, between lofty mountain tops, the tea plantations can be found. The misty air, soil rich with minerals and bright sunlight creates idyllic conditions for growing tea, with Fukamushi Green Tea one of the most exclusive teas to be grown in the region.

Matcha Premium Green Tea

The ancient city of Kyoto in Japan is where the country’s revered tea ceremony was born. It’s natural that the birthplace of Japanese tea culture is also the home of one of its most prized tea leaves – the Matcha tea leaf. This high grade tea leaf is grown and harvested exclusively in the Uji hills surrounding the proud city. Specifically, it is close to the river that the tea plants are grown. This is due to the higher fertility of the soil. Packed with nutrients and moisture flowing down from the hills, it’s believed that it’s this special soil that gives Matcha tea leaves their signature deep and mellow taste.

WellTea Sencha Miyazaki Green Tea Quick View

Miyazaki Sencha Green Tea

Miyazaki Sencha tea comes from Japan’s fourth largest tea-producing region. The reasonably priced Miyazaki Sencha is similar to a medium steamed Sencha tea but without the price tag. This makes it an excellent choice if you want to indulge in drinking Japanese tea throughout the tea and premium Japanese teas are outside your price range. The leaves of Miyazaki Sencha can look as though they weren’t harvested until autumn, due to their rustic look. However, when added to a cup with warm water, their mellow yet slightly fruity aroma is released. You can then sit back, close your eyes and bask in the sweet scents and tastes, picturing yourself enjoying a cup of fresh tea at the beautiful plantation where Miyazaki Sencha is cultivated.

WellTea Gyokuro Sencha Green Tea Quick View

Gyokuro Kerigane Green Tea

Gyokuro Kerigane green tea offers the deliciously luxuriant aroma and taste of a premium Gyokuro tea for a fraction of the cost. This is because Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is made from the stems and veins of the only highest-quality Gyokuro tea leaves, which provides it with a distinctively sweetness of taste. The reason for the typically high price tag of Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is due to its rarity. This is firstly because there are fewer organic growers of this type of tea in Japan, compared to the more common Sencha tea plant. Secondly, knowing that it is a highly prized type of tea, growers will often choose to share it with their friends and family rather than sell it for profit.

Bancha Green Tea

Japanese Bancha tea is harvested from the same tree as the popular Sencha family of teas. However, the leaves for Bancha tea are harvested later, towards the start of autumn and almost up until winter when the leaves are larger. This is known as the ‘second flush’ of harvesting. Due to the fact that they are picked later in the year, Bancha tea is ranked at a lower grade than traditional Sencha tea. The advantage of this is that it makes Bancha tea much more affordable.
