Green Tea First Harvest

Tea Description

First harvest green tea is something special and prized within Japan, named ichibancha (first tea, 一番茶). The first not quite fully grown tea leaves of the year are removed by hand to create a stunning taste that can only be found within that particular timing of the year.

This tea will give off a slightly sweeter taste than you're used to, due to the elevated amino acids and theanine found only in first harvest green tea.

      Ordered a small bag of this tea first just to try, once that was finished quickly I ordered the 160g bag, no questions. Best green tea I've tasted by far. Not bitter like some teas out there, and can definitely taste and smell the freshness. Thumbs up from me.

      Hi Steven, I hadn't heard from you since our Facebook chat so I'm really happy to hear you liked it. I know exactly what you mean in regards to your description and definitely something we'll be keeping on Tea Life for a long time as we love this Green Tea too.

      Hi Jason, thank you! We were quite picky with which green tea was added to the Tea Life lineup, but we knew this was the one as soon as we tried it. So glad you like it too.

      I used to drink tea all the time. And I like green tea. When I tried this green tea I could feel the difference between the taste, smell and color, which I was very impressed. It's better than the tea I've had now. And everyone knows that green tea is good for. When we have a good tea, It can make our lives incredibly happy.

      Great tea


      Good flavour and great value

      Thank you

      Great service guys, many thanks

      Thankyou Marina!
      Lovely flavour

      Lovely flavoured tea.
      I really like the coffee taste alternative, but gave three stars for the fact it would be better in cup bags as I found it a little messy.

      Hi Debra, apologies for that! If you do place another order please put 'tea bags' within the notes and I will provide you with some easy to use bags that you can cleanly place the chicory within using a small teaspoon. It's not necessary for 99% of teas here, but we're still thinking of providing some with each order just in case.
      Awesome tea and service

      I love this tea, it is so beautiful to look at especially with the colour change. The service is fantastic and would definitely recommend!

      Thank you Anh, this one has been even more popular than we expected!
