Hanami Flush is named in tribute to hanami (cherry blossom appreciation) season in Japan, and 'flush' refers to the burst of fresh new leaves (called a 'flush') on the tea bushes awakening in spring. The term shincha literally means 'new tea.' Shincha is characterized by its fresh aroma and sweetness,which in P & T´s Hanami Flush case, also comes from a light steam method called asamushi. Besides the fresh aroma of the young leaves, shincha is characterized by its relatively low content of bitter catechin and caffeine, and high content of amino acid.
