Ippodo Tea Bag Set
A great introduction to Japanese green teas, this assorted box contains 12 one-cup tea bags of Gyokuro, Hojicha, and Sencha.
Sencha offers a balanced flavor profile of umami, sweetness, bitterness, astringency, and green notes. The most common tea variety drank in Japan, this classic tea is great for any occasion.
Gyokuro is a hearty and sweeter green tea than Sencha. Contains significant amounts of caffeine and is suitable for slow sipping and savoring. Gyokuro involves a more intensive cultivation process in which the tea leaves are grown under the shade to bring out more complexity and deeper flavors.
Hojicha is a very aromatic, light-bodied tea made from roasted tea leaves. A popular evening tea due to its low caffeine content, it pairs well with sweets or meals.

Ippodo Tea has produced the highest quality of Japanese green tea for the last 3 centuries and is considered by many to be the best procurer of Japanese green tea on the market today. Ippodo Tea is cultivated in the lush fields of Kyoto, and its surrounding areas, mainly for the region's mild and temperate climate, mineral-rich soil, and essential balance of sunshine and rainfall that contributes to the tea's incredible freshness and complex flavors.
It is recommended by Ippodo that Ippodo tea is enjoyed within 2 weeks of opening the tea's package. All tea from Ippodo is also labeled with a suggested date of purchase to help consumers enjoy the tea in its best state.
