An on the go tea drinker would love the assorted set that Ippodo offers. This 12-bag assortment includes four gyukuro tea bags, four sencha tea bags, and four hojicha tea bags. What makes this Ippodo selection unique is the high-quality Mecha that is used for the tea compilation. This assortment is ideal for traveling, the office, or a thoughtful gift to a fellow tea enthusiast.
For high-quality taste, tea-bags should be steeped slightly longer than their loose-leaf tea equivalents
- Gyokuro is rich in theanine- an amino acid responsible for gyokuro s full-bodied mellow sweetness and slightly viscous nature. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami.
- Sencha is a rich blend of sweetness and bitterness. Regardless of the time of day, it's used to revitalize your mind and refresh your spirit.
- Hojicha is dark amber and offers a premium savory taste that's easily paired with sweets or a hearty meal.
