The first harvest of Japanese green tea is cause for celebration, as plants that have stored nutrients all winter long battle frost to sprout the year's first buds. These precious leaves are few (and rare outside Japan) and justifiably considered to be the finest green teas in the world. Ours is a moderately-steamed Tsuyuhikari Shincha from Shizuoka. Its dark green, needle-like leaves deliver a fragrant aroma, translucent cup and a flavor profile that is layered with peach blossom notes and hints of sweet pea sprouts. Steep at 175°F for 2 minutes
