About Gyokuro: Meticulously cultivated in shaded fields, gyokuro is the most exquisite of the Japanese loose-leaf teas. With a full-bodied yet mellow sweetness (umami) that softly lingers on the tongue, gyokuro is best appreciated when slowly sipped during a relaxing moment of the day. While many teas are consumed as a means to quench a thirst, gyokuro is different. Its refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.

For seasoned gyokuro drinkers interested in a tea with a rich, robust character, Ippodo offers Karigane. Unlike the tightly twisted leaves of regular gyokuro, Karigane consists of leaf stems. Highly recommended for gyokuro devotees looking for a rich, high-quality taste that is unique to stems.

About Sencha: Grown in full sunlight, sencha leaves are fresh, fragrant and full of vitality. Characterized by a harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, richness, astringency and fragrance, sencha has long been a favorite among ardent tea lovers. In the morning or afternoon, before or after a meal, sencha is the perfect drink to revitalize the mind and refresh the 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 an excellent choice for newcomers to Ippodo's senchas.
