Fabulous cup of tea!
I'm normally not the biggest green tea drinker, usually I like black teas. However I stumbles across Ippodo on the SHOP app in my boosted shop cash stores, and im SO THANKFUL I DID. I bought a box of the sencha teabags and the variety teabags and so far the sencha is probably my favorite with the gyokuro right behind it. The sencha is a wonderful anytime tea for me. It's light and smooth but maintains a wonderful flavor throughout drinking it. Definitely a great thirst quencher for sure. I really want to get into and try Ippodo's matcha as well, however I don't have any tools or enough $ to invest in the starter kit. Hopefully soon though!

Tea is excellent no delivery fee until I tried to reorder. Would reorder but will not because of delivery fee.

Ippodo Sencha individual teabags are the best!!
The tea is great but I really like the individual packaging and the teabag opening and preparation experience. Definitely worth the cost.

Refreshing and Flavorful
Could be a little more flavorful, but still really good! Too pricey to be an everyday treat, but nice on occasion. Make sure you use the right amount of water! I accidentally used a full 8 oz the first time and was very disappointed. It’s much better when using the recommended 150ml (somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 cups).

The Sancha Tea bags were the best tasting green tea I've ever had. I honestly don't have the patience required to have a good cup of Mancha but, perhaps some day.

The tea bags are a great for offices and on the go. The elegant notes of herbaceous, sweet and mellow tones are good introductions for the brand and for those new to sencha a fine entry way on its complex path.
