Teabag Assortment - 12 Bags
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.
Ways to Prepare
- Add one teabag to a cup, pour on boiling temperature water, and wait for 1.5 minutes.
