A few months ago a friend gave me a gift from IPPODO – a Japanese Tea Co. with a shop in the centre of Kyoto.
IPPODO Tea Co. was founded in 1717. The Company is well known for its high quality green Teas. IPPODO means “preserve one”, as it is the company´s mission to `forever preserve its tradition of providing high quality tea with a supreme taste.`
Here you can buy all kinds of Japanese Teas – from Matcha to Gyokuro, Sencha, Hojicha and more. They also sell all the necessary Tea utensils.
You can buy their Teas online - http://shop.ippodo-tea.co.jp/kyoto/shopf/
