Haruyo Morimoto in her organic Shincha tea garden

Haruyo Morimoto loves her organic tea garden. The tea bushes are like her children for Haruyo. When she walks through the tea garden parcels, she touched the tea leaves to feel how tender they are. This helps her to find out the perfect time for shincha harvest.

Every year Shigeru Morimoto, Haruyo’s husband, produces the Morimoto Shincha. We then bring it to tea stores in Europe for everyone to enjoy.

The Morimoto Shincha is known for its pure and smooth taste, with a lot of freshness but also umami. It is characterized by a very gentle final heating, like the other teas from Haruyo and Shigeru Morimoto.

Most tea makers tend to make a stronger final heating, which created a kind of sweetness, but also take a little freshness away. In a way, with their tea, the Morimotos have developed their very own style among Japanese teas.
