Don't know, but i guess all japanese tea vendors will have at least something for pre order. Especially the 88 nights shincha. This year i'll increase my personal stock of 88 nights shincha, last year was also my first time trying it. Regret didn't get more
Local teashop owner with who i'm working with also gave me a tip, how to enjoy fresh shincha more. Preheat kyusu, put leaves inside, let leaves warm up, shake a bit and open lid little bit, try to smell air inside kyusu. The smell is godly
