Hachiju Hachiya means "88 nights" and refers to the eighty-eighth day after the first day of spring on the traditional Japanese calendar. Tradition has it that the 88th day is the best time to pick tea, and to this day, Hachiju Hachiya Shin Cha is prized as high-quality green tea. The Japanese traditionally believe that drinking tea picked on the 88th day fends off diseases for the following year.
