Ippodo Tea

Wakayanagi

Regular price ₱450.00

Ippodo's Wakayanagi is a light and refreshing tea with hints of umami. This is made from yanagi tea leaves, which have been allowed to grow larger than sencha tea leaves. This is a pleasant and refreshing green tea that works well both hot and iced. Due to its flavor profile, it accompanies a variety of food and drinks well.

We recommend this as a lighter counterpart for people who enjoy sencha.

Wakayanagi is an approachable and light green tea with a very balanced astringency and umami. It is very refreshing and is great taken hot or iced.

Hot
240ml 96-100ºC (Off the boil) Water
10g Wakayanagi

> Pour 240ml of off the boil water (96-100ºC) onto 10g of Wakayanagi. Steep for 30 seconds before straining (fine mesh/tea strainer) into a pre-heated tea cup/tea pot.

* Recommended to pre-heat brewer, tea pot, and tea cup beforehand. Tea can be steeped for a second time with 150ml for another 30 seconds but will be a bit lighter than the first infusion. Over extraction (oversteeping or using water above 100ºC) may cause additional bitterness in the extraction.

Iced
150ml 96-100ºC (Off the boil) Water
10g Wakayanagi
90g Ice

> Pour 150ml of off the boil water (96-100ºC) onto 10g of Wakayanagi. Steep for 30 seconds before straining (fine mesh/tea strainer) into a separate container with 90g of ice (avoid plastic and glass containers). Stir the brewed houjicha with ice before pouring into a glass with additional ice.

* Recommended to pre-heat the brewer beforehand. Avoid using plastic or glass to mix the initial iced houjicha as hot temperatures will affect plastic while quick changes in temperature may break glass. Tea can be steeped for a second time with 100ml for another 30 seconds but will be a bit lighter than the first infusion. You may add 50g of ice to be mixed afterwards. Over extraction (oversteeping or using water above 100ºC) may cause additional bitterness in the extraction.
