Shincha (shin-cha), our highest-grade, single origin Australian green tea, is made from young first-harvest spring leaves. Bursting with flavour and nutrients, these delicate leaves have a lively, grassy-fresh, vegetal taste. This unique ‘spring tea’ is perfect as a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. If you like a classic green tea without bitterness, you’ll love this style.

    First received this tea as a gift – have been a repeat customer for 2 years now! Coming from a Chinese family we are quite particular with our tea at home – but we all love this one. Lovely, very high quality green tea.

    Ordered the 250 gram pack of Shincha tea this time. It is my all time favourite. I could drink it all day. Always have my little Zero teapot filled up for my end of night treat.

    This green tea is honestly the best I’ve ever tasted. The leaves are so fresh. In they go into my little Zero teapot and voila, gorgeous subtle flavours . With winter coming on it prompts me to drink more. Comforting hygge as they say in Denmark.

    This is by far the best tea I have ever tried, so delicate and refreshing. I love that is an Australian product, delivery was very fast and it came with a lovely handwritted note. Thank you

    So delicate, so pure. I always drink my Sincha in a special china cup, very slowly to savour the beautiful flavour and taste. Grassy, yes. Smooth, yes. The perfect tea to relax with.

    I love this product!!!

    I am sorry I did not review when you sent this email.

    I used to have a Chinese cleaner and she bought me a special pot. I make a fresh pot of this tea each morning and help myself to several cups during the day from the same pot by pouring some concentrated tea in an filling the rest of the cup with hot water.

    Thank you so much. I love that you are in Newtown and I am in Glebe!

    This tea is a delight, light, vegetal, a little buttery & very refreshing. Several infusions can be enjoyed from the original serving. A few cups in the morning certainly brightens my day! So nice to be able to buy such beautiful green tea from Australia.
