2017 SHINCHA COMING SOON!
















Summer greetings from Charaku Fine Japanese Tea. 2017 Shincha (New Harvest Tea) is due in next week! 
Due to cold weather in Japan, the new tea harvest was extremely late this year. However, we secured our orders as soon as teas were available and expect the 2017 shincha to arrive next week.  In the meantime, our remaining inventory of 2016 teas are currently available at 20% to 30% off! These are our steepest discounts ever, so it's a good time to stock up. All of our Genmaicha, Houjicha, and Kukicha are 30% off, and remaining Sencha and Gyokuro are 20% off while supplies last. Remember that Charaku teas are always small-packed and nitrogen-flushed for maximum freshness and longevity, so 2016 teas are still good well into 2018. 
New tea offerings to look forward to are more organic Sencha and Gyokuro from Kirishima in Kagoshima Prefecture. This area has been expanding organic farming methods in recent years, and some good organic teas are now being produced there.
Visit www.charaku-tea.com to see our selection of teas, tea accessories, and tea ware. If you would like to combine shipping on orders of 2016 and 2017 teas, just let me know in the comments section and I'll hold current sale order and refund any shipping difference of combined orders.
We are also discounting items by 15% to 20% of the listed prices on our WaSabiDou site, www.mingei-wasabidou.com, in preparation of a showroom move this summer. There are lots of antique & contemporary crafts, including: ceramic tea wares, Japanese art and craft books, wood-block prints, folk toys, and more. Please visit and ask any questions.                
    Thank you so much for your past support and I look forward to continue providing you the finest variety of Japanese teas as we enter the New Tea Year!

    Sincerely,
    Tatsuo
