Ippodo's Obukucha is a special blend of genmaicha. It uses higher grade green tea leaves and a smaller proportion of roasted rice than our year-round Genmaicha to bring out the flavour of the leaves.
Ippoen has a rich umami flavour with almost no astringency. It is a premium gyokuro brimming with magnificent fragrance. It has very clear and refreshing taste, and is very popular among gyokuro lovers.
Kumpu is notable as a premium sencha with a refined fragrance and magnificent aftertaste that lingers pleasantly. It is a good choice for people who want to savour the umami of Japanese tea without the astringency.
