Taste notes

Shoike has an even balance of umami, sweetness, astringency, bitterness, and fragrance, in a medium-bodied sencha. The result is a round-character tea that is accessible for beginners and satisfying for more seasoned sencha drinkers.

This item’s full name is Shoike-no-o, and this is the name written on the package.

Great intro to sencha

When Ippodo stresses the balance of this tea they are not lying. The balance between sweetness, astringency, bitterness and overall flavor was a pleasant surprise and would certainly appeal to a long-time sencha drinker as well as someone who has only ever brewed from mass-produced teabags and is looking for a change. The tea is high quality, but also hardy enough to stand up to small brewing mistakes (temp too high, brewed to long, etc). I feel the price point is also pretty attractive and very reasonable for the quality of the tea. If you are overwhelmed by the options on the Ippodo site, I can sincerely recommend Shoike-no-o as a good starting point for any loose leaf green tea adventure. Happy brewing!
