@Alex, Magokoro is a great tea did you have the sencha version of it? I didn't go with any for shincha season this year because I am not a huge fuka fan and I wanted to try some other fukas that I hadn't had before or in a long while.

From everything that I have read, shincha seems to be limted to senchas. Are there shincha versions of tencha/matcha or gyokuro?
