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.

Ippodo teas are delicious. Drinking them makes our family feel like we’re back in Kyoto. The ordering process is easy and delivery is very fast!
Without a doubt, the best green tea shipped regularly to my home. Very balanced and stepped at 175 F, produces an outstanding Hosen tea. I am reminded of the many trips I took to Kyoto.
I really love the way Ippodo crafts their tea. No stems at all, beautiful color, shape and scent of leaves. Brewed as directed, the result is a full round, balanced tea. Little to no bitterness fresh taste. I received their Shincha at the same time and both are great. Shincha is a must try!
I was given some green tea from Japan as a gift, and it was the best green tea I ever tasted, so sweet and tender. I inquired of the gift giver how to go about ordering more of that tea, but one can only obtain that tea in Japan, as the company does not ship it anywhere. But she found a comparable company to order from, which was IPPODO TEA. So I ordered this Hosen with great trepidation yet anticipation of it being the same. Well let me tell you...it was actually even BETTER than the original!!! I did not think that was possible! I actually crave this tea daily, and add nothing to it at all, it is so deliciously perfect. Thank you IPPODO! I will be a recurring customer for sure!
Excellent sencha. Brought it home many times from Ippodo store in Tokyo. Expensive here so a treat for my morning tea
