For those who love hojicha, we offer Kuki Hojicha – a stems-only version of hojicha. Compared to regular Gokujo Hojicha, Kuki Hojicha as richer 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 one of the Japanese green teas. Dark amber in color, this roasted bancha releases an amazingly rich aroma that completely permeates the room. The savory flavor is very distinct; it is rich but light-bodied, without much astringency.
Low in caffeine, 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, hojicha is an absolute favorite among Ippodo patrons. It can also be enjoyed chilled!
