Ippodo Mail (No. 68): Sipping Tea in the Shade
 

Ippodo Mail (No. 68): Sipping Tea in the Shade
On the hottest days of summer, sometimes all we can manage is to brew a large jug of iced tea, turn the fan on, and sit in the shade with some light reading. Here are some teas that make for soothing companions on a hot and humid afternoon.

 


Gokujo Hojicha Large Can w/box
 

Gokujo Hojicha Large Can w/box
When brewing tea in quantity, often the first tea that comes to mind in Japan is the roasted tea called hojicha. Easily brew this tea hot in a large kettle and then cool in the fridge. Or, cold brew with the leaves directly in a pitcher overnight and then filter in the morning. Either way, this roasty tea with a sweet aroma will taste great as you sit in the shade.

Gyokuro Mantoku Medium Can w/box
Gyokuro can be known for its deeply rich umami flavors, but there are also varieties like Mantoku that are lighter and refreshing when brewed in large batches. Found here in Ippodo's beloved orange label can, Mantoku has the soothing forest-green color and satisfying flavor of gyokuro that will hit the spot when the thermometer is rising.

Matcha Ikuyo-no-mukashi 40g Can
Even for matcha lovers, the rich umami of a higher grade matcha can be a bit overwhelming on very hot days. Ikuyo-no-mukashi is the perfect grade for these situations. Not too rich or too light, it has an easy-to-drink, balanced flavor. Try making it cold by just adding ice after whisking.
