Taste Notes

For those who love hojicha, we also offer Stems Hojicha – a stems-only version of hojicha. Compared to our regular Gokujo Hojicha, Stems Hojicha has a deeper roasted flavor and a unique “stems” character- round, hearty, and crisp. If you love the taste of Gokujo Hojicha, but are looking for a tea that is more full-bodied, then this is a must-try.

For your first taste of hojicha, we recommend the leaves and stems version, Gokujo Hojicha.


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.

Amazing Tea

Great flavor and taste. My wife and I enjoy it every day!

Fast shipping, great quality!

So glad that I can buy them here in the states. I thought I have to wait u til I can freely visit Japan. Now can’t wait to visit your store in NYC.

Great everyday tea

Very enjoyable Kuki Hojicha anytime of the day because it has less caffeine. Full bodied, not too smoky, delicious hot or cold.
As Ippodo site in Japanese suggested, I enjoyed to make 3 pots with the same leaves. It paired great with food like tempura, tonkatsu, stair fly, buttery cake, cookies and wagashi etc. Thank you!

Rich and Delicious

I’m a huge hojicha fan and decided to gift myself this stems hojicha. I love the deep, rich flavor it has and I am enjoying it immensely. Such high quality!

Amazing Hojicha

I’ve had several Hohichas before, but none are as aromatic and full of roasted flavor as this one. I personally haven’t modified the instructions for brewing yet, but the recommended brewing method works excellently. Definitely would recommend for anyone who likes the roasted aspect of Hojicha or wants to try something new; the tea immediately reminded me of a lighter, less acidic coffee when I first prepared it.
