Ippodo Mail (No. 17): Life with Japanese Tea
When you first bring Japanese tea into your life, which are the best utensils to choose? And which are the best teas for a budding aficionado? Here are some of our suggestions.


Premium Select Matcha

Premium Select Matcha
20g Can ¥3,000

We were delighted to receive a sizable number of orders for our Premium Select Matcha when we introduced it last month. If you haven't yet tasted this mellow, creamy matcha, we highly recommend that you give it taste. If you are trying matcha for the first time, this premium tea is sure to delight you with the new experience of matcha's distinctive sweetness.

80-tip Chasen (Bamboo Whisk)

80-tip Chasen
(Bamboo Whisk)

A bamboo whisk called a chasen is essential for preparing matcha properly. If you look after your chasen well, you can keep using it until the whisk has lost several of its bamboo tips (tines). It will last even longer if you take care not to scrape the chasen on the bottom of your tea bowl when you are whisking tea.

Yakishime Kyusu Teapot (Banko-yaki)

Yakishime Kyusu Teapot (Banko-yaki)

One of the most pleasing features of this kyusu is its slightly rough surface, and each time you prepare tea, its texture is reassuring to hold. In a way, it's like the way you relax whenever you meet up with a close friend. If you appreciate the beauty and feel of your kyusu and other utensils, it makes for an even more pleasing teatime.

Nichigetsu 100g Bag

Nichigetsu 100g Bag

This is a standard class sencha that is very pleasant to drink, and the flavor is one of which you will never tire, even if you drink it every afternoon tea break. Its harmoniousness is probably its defining characteristic, and always seems to fit with whatever occasion arises. We never cease to be delighted by the aroma and the color when preparing Nichigetsu sencha in a Yakishime Kyusu Teapot.

Though we've been shipping worldwide for some time, we still get very excited every time we send teas and utensils to customers in different countries. It's wonderful to imagine people around the world sharing the enjoyment of teatime with our Japanese green tea.
