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.

Brewed at 1/2 strength (1 Tbsp instead of the recommended 2), I really enjoyed this tea! There is a definite bitterness to it up front but it is light and doesn't impact the experience negatively. I can drink this tea any time of day but especially enjoy it at night after dinner.
Excellent taste and well balanced! Ability to change intensity based on proportion/ratio.
Well balanced, and flavourful - easy enough to drink throughout the day.
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!
