Shin Cha Report 2 - Live Pictures from the Tea Farm

Our green tea is growing soundly and getting ready for the harvest. We are very excited to bring you the fresh green tea very soon.

April 5, 2011
Due to the cold spring weather in Shizuoka, green tea buds were still not showing and the harvest was expected to be later than usual.

April 16, 2011

Buds have finally started showing. The tea field was gradually turning into vivid green.

April 24, 2011
The tea field is covered with gorgeous young leaves, and the harvest date is set to be April 27.

A section of the tea field is reserved for Temomi Shin Cha (hand-kneading green tea) and takes extra care.
On the harvest day of April 27, the traditional Temomi Shin Cha making will be performed to make the freshest green tea just for those who have pre-ordered this special tea.
If you have pre-ordered Temomi Shin Cha, please expect it to be delivered to you during the second week of May.

Tea Maestro's grand-daughter loves to play in the tea field.
