A set of teas and a glass for enjoying early summer

At the time of year when we get the first few hot and sticky days, cooling Japanese tea becomes increasingly attractive. Enjoy it to the full by drinking from a delicate glass that brings out the tea's colour, aroma, and mouthfeel. It's amazing how changing the glass can make such a difference to how a tea tastes.

Who do Ippodo staff give it to?

People who are good at making time for themselves. The glass, which is great for bringing out the characteristics of tea, is also good for wine and sake.

  • This glass allows you to more fully appreciate the delicate and complex intermingling of flavours of Japanese tea

    This glass allows you to more fullyThis incredibly thin and delicate glass is crafted by artisans. The wide mouth of the glass helps to ensure that the tea enters your mouth slowly, allowing you to more fully appreciate the complex intermingling of flavours—sweetness, umami, astringency, and bitterness. The first time you use it, you'll be surprised at how much difference the glass makes to your appreciation of the taste.

  • Shincha, the taste of the new season

    This is the only time of year that you can experience shincha's fresh fragrance and flood of vitality. What will this year's shincha be like? What sort of aroma and sweetness can we expect? And what about its bittersweetness, the characteristic of buds? To fully appreciate the complex intermingling of tastes that shincha has to offer, we recommend that you try drinking it from a delicate glass.

  • Mild sweetness of whole grain barley mugicha

    Mugicha made from whole grain barley takes a little longer to produce, but the result is an exquisite unadulterated sweetness that permeates slowly. Mugicha is often thoroughly chilled, but we recommend that you also try it at room temperature.

  • This assortment of teabags makes it easy to try different teas

    This set combines gyokuro, sencha, and hojicha teabags. With gyokuro and sencha, you can bring out the full flavour by allowing the hot water to cool a little and then brewing for longer than usual.
