Savour the flavour and fragrance of spring quickly and easily with Drip Tea Bag Shincha!

Shincha is freshly picked tea that possesses the wonderful flavour of spring. Try the authentic, abundant flavour and fragrance of shincha, which is only available during this time, in this quick and easy way made possible with Drip Tea Bags.

Just place a Drip Tea Bag over the cup, pour on boiling hot water, and brew in the cup for about one minute, until the tea is ready. With Drip Tea Bags, while brewing and waiting for the flavour to be extracted, you can enjoy watching the tea leaves change shape and open up as you pour on water, appreciating the vibrant yellow-green of the new buds, and savouring the fresh fragrance of shincha. Enjoy an enriching teatime, savouring spring with all five senses.

This tea can be prepared simply by pouring on hot water, making it easy for anyone to try, even if they don’t have a kyusu teapot or aren’t familiar with how to prepare Japanese tea. It makes a good casual gift or seasonal present for late spring.

How does it taste?

Verdant fragrance and energetic flavour full of vitality. The taste of spring, with the lingering bittersweetness that is characteristic of buds.

How/when to enjoy it?

Just slip a Drip Tea Bag into the pocket of your bag, and you’ll be able to quickly prepare delicious shincha whenever you feel like it, whether you’re taking a break while working around the house, or you’re traveling, outdoors, or at the office.

What to enjoy it with?

It’s great with deep-fried chicken, which is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The slight bitterness of shincha also goes well with other deep-fried foods.

How do Ippodo staff enjoy it?

Some staff give it to friends as a seasonal gift, together with refreshing wagashi sweets that are available in late spring and a note suggesting a get-together during summer vacation.
