Official Shincha 2013 Ordering topic

Postby Seeker » Mar 14th, '13, 02:50

I haven't seen a mention of shincha for 2013, and I'm really starting to think about it, thirst for it, dream about it.
Also makes me wonder about radiation reports for 2013?
What say we all?

Re: Shincha 2013 anyone?

Since this is the first Shincha 2013 topic, I will convert this to the Official Shincha 2013 topic which will be stickied. If that is OK with you, Seeker?

Oddly, I have not been too obsessed thinking about Shincha so far. I guess because I have some pretty amazing Sencha on hand. Usually by this time of the harvest year, my sencha stocks are depleted or at best all I have are some not so fave leftovers. Then I focus on Gyokuro and other teas while awaiting Shincha. By the time Shincha rolls around, I am primed for it.

So, I guess I have a 100 or so grams of sencha on hand ... likely will hold out and not order any til Shincha.

Likely, there will be Shincha OTTI round(s) this year again as well. In fact, I am hoping to expand on it this Shincha :!: :mrgreen:

That is something I am really looking forward to! This will only be my second Shincha, but I am hoping to get a bit more involved this year. I ordered only a couple different teas last year. Now that I am more confident in my brewing and tea knowledge, I am planning to stock up big time (as well as participate in the OTTI round(s)) 8)

Thank you for your expressed interest. :mrgreen:

I swear I posted something in this thread and it disappeared!

I'm curious about trying some shincha this year. Probably from Den's or Ippodo.

Is there anything a newbie should know about?

I preordered a couple things from O-Cha. I didn't know they'd charge me right away for a preorder. Oh well.

Now I need an 88th Night.

Yes, I believe that is their practice, viz. to charge your credit card right away and then delivery the goods later. (It is one reason why I don't pre-order from O-Cha.)

But perhaps Kevin will correct me if I am wrong on this.
