Spring Tea Harvest
Spring is still three weeks away, but a recent article in China's Shanghai Daily noted that some spring teas in China are already being harvested.
Thanks to unseasonably warm weather, green teas from the Emei Mountain area in Sichuan Province and Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province have already begun to turn up in shops in the Shanghai area.
If you're waiting for shincha (new tea) from Japan, you'll have to sit tight for a while, according to an entry at O-Cha.com's Green Tea Blog. For more on shincha and the green tea harvest in Japan, look here.
