    Hatsuzumi Shincha

    First Picked Japanese Green Tea Leaves

    Hatsuzumi Shincha is one of the first picked spring teas in Shizuoka Prefecture. In the Japanese language, "hatsu" means first and "zumi" comes from the verb tsumu, meaning "to pick" -- hence "first-picked" tea. Hatsuzumi Shincha's taste is of a slight pleasant bitterness on the fresh sweet note. Both everyday tea drinkers and connoisseurs will be satisfied with this outstanding Shizuoka green tea. It is highly worthy of meaningful gift giving.

    This tea is available in a 500 gram "Plain Wrap" package. This represents a 25% savings. If you are a first-time buyer at, we recommend you try our smaller consumer-size packages first as the larger bulk sizes are not included in our Guaranteed Satisfaction Policy.

    • 500 grams (1 pound 2 ounces)
    • Makes approximately 225 to 250 servings of tea
    • Brewing instructions are not printed on Consumer (Bulk) packages. Please see the How To Brew page for brewing instructions. Hatsuzumi Shincha brews exactly like Sencha green tea.
