Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf sencha for an easy, every-day drinking experience.
Hosen - 150g Can
Hosen is our recommended sencha for those new to our teas. Its classic character is balanced—it is blended to have umami, sweetness, astringency, and aroma in harmonious proportion.
Hosen is a good introduction to Ippodo sencha. It has gentle sweetness, bright fragrance, and a mellow aftertaste, characteristic of our premium sencha blends. In our medium-rich category, this tea has a balanced character with more umami and sweetness than astringency. Try this sencha first, and brew it in the morning, at teatime, and other times that call for an aromatic, satisfying green tea.
Ways to Prepare
Hot brewing is a quick and easy way to get delicious tea. This recipe makes for a more refreshing and exhilarating experience.
For a fast, fragrant pitcher of iced tea, brew a strong batch of sencha using boiling hot water, and then pour over ice, diluting its strength and balancing its flavor.
Cold brewing brings out the most sweetness and umami from the leaves.
