One-Cup Teabag Assortment
This set contains four of each of our single-serving sencha, gyokuro, and hojicha teabags.
This set contains an assortment of our three types of one-cup size teabag: sencha, gyokuro, and hojicha. This 12-bag box includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese. Its portable size makes it easy to enjoy tea at home or at work.
It also makes for a great gift, as an introduction to three different types of Japanese green tea.
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.
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.
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.
How to Prepare
Add one teabag to a cup, pour on boiling water, and wait for 1 minute. Move the teabag around in the hot water until the tea has reached the desired strength. Remove the bag and enjoy.
Ways to Prepare
This is absolutely the perfect gift for those who many not be familiar with Japanese tea (especially from a Japanese or Japanese-American to a non-Japanese recipient). Teabags are easy to use. 最高のお土産品です。
This hojicha has such a wonderful roasted flavor. Both my husband and I really enjoy this tea.
The hojicha flavor is good. Balanced and not an astringent roasted flavor. The bags are an easy, quick way to get a lovely cup of brewed hojicha. I think the packaging could be more special to make the item gift worthy, but once the tea is in the cup, no one can tell anyway. 😉 I had second thoughts about gifting it and kept it for personal enjoyment for this reason.
My favorite tea! The bags are convenient for travel so I don’t have to miss my tea when away from home. I used to drink regular black tea but live how soft and non-tannic this roasted tea is. The aroma is heavenly.
It is so wonderful to be able to pop a Hojicha teabag into a cup of boiled water for instant smoky bliss - and little to no caffeine! Perfect for a late-evening cup of relaxing tea!
