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.

Taste Notes

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.

Classic and clean, perfect high-end entry point

Beautiful blend of classic clean high-end Japanese tea. Perfect as a gift or for home. Best on its own or with light snacks because the tea holds its own. Great entry point for those new to Japanese tea.
