Where our tea is grown

The flavor of Ippodo tea
Producing the right taste
Fostering delicious flavor by leveraging the magical effect of time
The power of tea leaves and the relationship between water temperature and taste
You can also produce different tastes with the same brand of tea, in addition to its standard taste, by adjusting the water temperature used during brewing. Raising the water temperature produces a lighter taste, while a lower water temperature gives the tea a smoother, more well-rounded flavor. Each tea brand is created using a blend of different kinds of tea leaves, so adjusting the water temperature allows you to bring out and savor different aspects of the tea’s character. Use this knowledge to fully appreciate the power that resides in Ippodo tea.
