It’s lunch, and a group of friends are over. You’re just about to sit down to eat, but you don’t have anything to drink!

Japanese green teas-sencha, gyokuro, genmaicha, and hojicha- pair really well with all sorts of lunches, from sandwiches to stews; burritos to bowls of salad.

Pick your favorite aroma, and with a kettle of hot water, you can have a pitcher full of tea ready to serve in about 3 minutes.

Ippodo Tea - blending teas that deserve to be rebrewed

As a Japanese tea specialist established in Kyoto three centuries ago, we blend and produce each of our teas with experience and high standards of quality.

Since our tea leaves have endurance, you can rebrew them three times without sacrificing flavor. Between each brew, peek inside the pot—if it looks like the tea leaves have not fully opened up yet, you can even try brewing a fourth or fifth time.
