Hosen - 100g
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.

Pleasing to drink any time of the day and is very well balance in terms of taste. Would order this again in the near future!
Very high quality tea, lightly sweet, strong caffeine kick with gentle mood altering properties. Maybe a little bit pricey but the edge is taken off with the free shipping deal. Top shelf sencha. Make sure you brew it correctly to maximize flavor and impact.
I started drinking the Hosen variety of green tea when I lived in Japan; I love the refreshing, clean flavor. This is the pure flavor of tea: add nothing but water that has boiled and then cooled just a bit. The Hosen I bought online in the U.S. seemed just as fresh as when I would buy it in Japan and bring it back in my luggage on business trips.
It is very good. I don't drink any other tea except for Ippodo's tea.
