In Japan, the most prestigious teas are known as the Ichibancha, which means "first flush". This new season tea comes from a small estate nestled in the heart of Shizuoka's soil, in Ryogochi, Japan. It is made using the Tsuyuhikari cultivar.

A very gentle Shincha characterised by notes that are symbolic of seafood and herbaceous plants.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
