Taste Notes

Our Gokujo Hojicha is the perfect blend of roasted tea leaves and stems that many have come to love as a soothing everyday tea. Soft, sweet, and aromatic, Gokujo Hojicha our first recommendation whether you are looking to try hojicha for the first time or for the hundredth time.


When you drink hojicha for the first time, you might be surprised that it is a type of Japanese green tea, given its amber color. This roasted bancha releases an amazingly rich aroma that completely fills the room. The flavor is light-bodied, without much astringency.

Hojicha can be enjoyed in the evening as well as in the morning or afternoon. It tastes great on its own, with sweets, or accompanying a meal. Flavorful and refreshing, this tea is an absolute favorite among Ippodo patrons.

My Favorite Hojicha

I was so happy to find out from a friend that you have a website and a distribution center in the USA, ordering was easy, and I received my (3) bags of tea in less than 5 days!

Thank you,

I used to visit Ippodo in Kyoto, while living in Japan. The highest standards, exhibited there, are borne out in this and the other teas offered here.

My favourite tea right now

There is something so comforting about the roasted flavour. This one in particular has a beautiful underlying sweetness that reminds me of caramel and the finish is clean.

This tea is extremely flavorful without any bitterness. Wonderful hot or cold. Ordering from Ippodo Tea was easy and my tea arrived quickly.
