*The fresh Shincha of 2019 is finally here*

Yoisho Kamairicha is a rare type of organic green tea from Japan, made from a blend of yabukita and kanaya midori cultivar. While most Japanese green tea undergoes a steaming process after being picked, this type of green tea is pan-fried/roasted in an iron vessel instead, to dry the leaves and prevent further oxidization. This process of making kamairicha originated in China, but became a speciality of Kyushu, Japan. It gives unique flavors and aromas to the tea, lighter and less umami than usual Japanese tea, more similar to Chinese green tea. It is also lower in caffein levels, making it a perfect choice for afternoon tea. « Yoisho » is a cheerful word of encouragement, used after a hard day of work, when you can finally allow yourself to sit and relax. 

Earth Karma : Beyond Organic. JAS certification. Vibrant. Sustainable farming. 100% chemical and pesticide-free. 

Tasting experience : Sweet, Mildly roasted flavors, Refreshing, with a touch of Umami 

Medicine : Air / Wood element Tea. Burst from the darkness into the light, the first breath of life. Up lifting. Joyful. Wood element allows us to express our true nature and manifest ourselves in the world. Wood is about growth and balance, coordination and expansion. Associated with the image of a tree, which grows with roots solidly grounded, reaching deep into the earth (Yin), and branches allowing flexibility and movements, reaching towards the sky (Yang). Air element is about movements, changes, transformations. 

Energy Flow (Qi) : Awaken into the heart. Nourish the throat. Uplift the mood and motivation while expanding in the roots.
