This meticulously designed kyusu is for preparing delicious Ippodo tea. Enjoy the once-a-year delight that is shincha tea with this special kyusu.
Ippodo's shincha is the year's first sencha tea-the year's first buds of the new season. However, shincha has properties that are different from the sencha sold year-round. The greatest difference is its fragrance. The fresh, verdant fragrance of shincha is a special fragrance that can only be enjoyed during this time of year.
When you drink tea made with Kaboku One-Pot Size Pack, make a point of noting the fragrance, and compare it with that of our shincha tea.
At about this time of year, we often receive inquiries about when gyokuro shincha will be released. The answer is that Ippodo's shincha range only offers sencha; we do not produce a gyokuro shincha.
The distinctive characteristics of Ippodo's gyokuro are its mellowness and umami. Those characteristics simply do not fit well with the astringency and youthful, invigorating bouquet of shincha. All the gyokuro produced by Ippodo is left to mature over the summer to ensure the teas develop velvety, well-balanced flavors.
If you taste shincha after savoring gyokuro, you will be amazed by the difference. You may find yourself enthralled by the profound delights of Japanese green tea!
