Limited Edition Shincha Okuhikari is a tea that arrived into our world by surprise! From a farm in the Kiewa Valley in North East Victoria, this green tea is derived from a variety of tea plant called Okuhikari, which is a late harvest variety. It must have been keen as to get growing, because it arrived early in spring, much to everyone’s surprise.  The tea farmer harvested the young spring leaves which were bursting with flavour. They were then very carefully processed, via steaming and rolling, to maintain the integrity and quality of the fresh leaf (which is higher in amino acids (flavour) and fibre than our regular Shincha).  The result is a uber high-quality spring tea with very complex layers of flavour, a sweet aroma and slight sweetness on the palate.  It has the grassy and vegetal umami notes you’d expect from a classic Japanese-style green tea but has absolutely no bitterness. In terms of Australian green tea, you’d be hard pressed finding a better tea. It’s just so elegant and refined – we haven’t seen a tea of such a high quality in a very long time.  It’s a tea to enjoy at any time of day or night and is excellent brewed hot, but for something really special, we recommend cold brewing this one.
