We don't have 2017 in stock yet (as of May 30, 2017) because (good) matcha is usually aged for 3-4 months after harvest. Sometimes you can get them in mid-summer and they are good but they are not at their peak. If you want the "newest" batch, then October of each year would be a good time to buy it. However, I can't say that matcha you purchase in October will be any better than matcha you would purchase in January. "Fresh" doesn't just mean when it was harvested, it also has to do with when it was pulled from cold storage and put into the package, how long it was on the shelf in regular storage, transit, etc. It's possible to purchase a matcha in January that is fresher than one put into the package in October. The current date and the package date are the most important consideration.
