Regular price $20.00

This set contains an assortment of three types of one-cup size teabag: sencha, gyokuro, and hojicha.

Sencha

The most popular tea variety in Japan, sencha brews a harmonious balance of umami, sweetness, bitterness, and astringency, with a bright fragrance like a sunny field. Enjoy sencha in the morning or afternoon, at mealtime or teatime. This classic green tea fits any occasion.

Gyokuro

Grown under the shade in dedicated fields, gyokuro is a green tea that has an abundance of hearty-sweet umami flavor. With a dew-like aroma, less astringency, and a thick character, this tea is one for slowly sipping and savoring.

Hojicha

When you drink hojicha for the first time, you might be surprised that it is a type of Japanese green tea, given its amber color. When brewed, this roasted bancha releases an amazingly rich aroma that completely fills the room. The flavor is light-bodied, without much astringency.

Hojicha can be enjoyed in the evening as well as in the morning or afternoon. It tastes great on its own, with sweets, or accompanying a meal. Flavorful and refreshing, this tea is an absolute favorite among Ippodo patrons.
