Shincha(新茶), meaning new tea, also called ichibancha(一番茶) is a type of Japanese green tea, the first month's harvest of sencha. Shincha is often called first flush sencha, although this term can be misleading: shincha does not have the same relationship to other sencha as the first flush teas in Darjeeling have to other teas there.

Shincha is produced in a wide variety of regions of Japan, and as the climate becomes colder moving north, the harvest dates for shincha become later as one moves north.
