In Japan, the important New Year’s holiday is an occasion to gather with family — which of course calls for tea. We release this Obukucha exclusively around the holiday season, as a tea to drink in celebration of the arrival of a new year. Obukucha is a genmaicha that combines the light sweetness of high grade yanagi leaves with the heartiness of roasted rice. Choose this tea for a fuller-bodied genmaicha that is satisfying in the heart of winter.
Sencha is the most popular type of Japanese green tea, and Hosen is a good introduction to Ippodo sencha. It has gentle sweetness, bright fragrance, and a mellow aftertaste, characteristic of our premium sencha blends. This season, we recommend sharing a pot of Hosen with family at a get-together. Pairs well with glazed cookies, pies, puddings, and other holiday desserts.
Kanro’s name means “sweet dew,” and this tea has a plentiful rich character until the last drop. We recommend Kanro to those trying Ippodo gyokuro for the first time. On a cold winter afternoon, stay inside and prepare a special teatime with this luxurious tea. Slow down, savor its texture, and don’t forget to share with others.
