Shincha Yamakai

Shincha Yamakai


Shincha Yamakai is a style sometimes referred to as yamacha, or “mountain tea,” due to its relatively high growing elevation. The plant genetics produce a lively green flavor similar to a yabukita cultivar tea, but with a delicate, lingering floral finish. Despite being a lightly-steamed shincha it has a rounded umami sweetness, and a pleasing mouthfeel, with the only a slightly brisk bitter-sweetness.

In a 400 ml kyusu or glass teapot steep 10-12 grams in 180F water for 1.5 minutes.
