The sencha we recommend for first-timers
A harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, richness, astringency and fragrance-this is sencha. It's easy to understand why sencha is such a favorite beverage in Japan, not only for those seeking to quench a thirst, but also for those wanting to sip on something extra special.
In the morning or afternoon, before or after a meal, sencha is the perfect drink to revitalize your mind and refresh your spirit.
For the sencha drinker who appreciates a refined, well-balanced tea, Hosen is an excellent choice. Its subtle sweetness, elegant fragrance and fresh aftertaste are characteristic of Ippodo's premium sencha blends. Though recommended primarily for seasoned tea drinkers, Hosen is also a good choice for newcomers and those seeking a slightly richer and sweeter version of Shoike-no-o.
