Green Tea First Harvest
Fresh Australian Green Tea Leaves
Fresh from Australian farmlands, 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, Methylxanthine and theanine found only in first harvest green tea.

Benefits of our Green Tea

Pesticide free, we're unable to certify organic but is grown under organic conditions from Australian suppliers. A word from the farm is at the bottom of this page.
This green tea is best steeped for 1-2 minutes at 65ºC to 70ºC.
Australian green tea growers have always strived to apply minimal pesticides as we have no insect pests and very few plant diseases. The final topical pesticide application was in May 2017.
As standard practice, Australian growers no longer apply these products. Our farm and its contracted growers have an ongoing policy of zero pesticide application.
To verify the operation of this policy, our farm has a rigorous traceability program. Growers are required to submit, in writing, a detailed monthly farm report and during the harvest period, a random sample of each growers crude tea is taken from each variety, and harvest to screen for pesticide residues by the QA Department.
