A lightly-steamed shincha  made from tea trees on the slopes of Mount Fuji in Shizuoka by Master Akiyama. Akiyama-san’s teas have won many prizes, including the top gold prize at The World Green Tea Contest, and he is recognised as one of Japan’s leading tea pioneers for his experimental work on different Japanese tea cultivars.

This year’s tea is super grassy, super smooth and a really good example of shincha.

It can be brewed normally at 70-75°C for a strong, grassy flavour, or with more leaf and lower temperature to accentuate the texture and umami.
