Taste notes

This holiday gift set pairs two of our favorite teas to drink in winter. Serve aromatic and light-bodied Obukucha at a festive dinner with family and friends. When you come in from the cold, warm up with rich, plentiful Hosen and some cookies at teatime. Packaged in a Japanese paper box and hand-wrapped with Japanese paper, this set makes for a thoughtful gift.

Obukucha

In Japan, the important New Year’s holiday is an occasion to gather with family—which of course calls for tea. We release this Obukucha exclusively around the holiday season, as a tea to drink in celebration of the arrival of a new year. Obukucha is a genmaicha that combines the light sweetness of high grade yanagi leaves with the heartiness of roasted rice. Choose this tea for a fuller-bodied genmaicha that is satisfying in the heart of winter.

Hosen sencha

Sencha is the most classic type of Japanese green tea, and Hosen is a good introduction to Ippodo sencha. This tea has gentle sweetness, bright fragrance, and a mellow aftertaste, characteristic of our premium sencha blends.
