Produced from hojicha buds and flakes, this single-serving teabag has an authentic character, with a soothing roasted aroma.
When you drink hojicha for the first time, you might be surprised that it is a green tea. 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.
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!
Made from hojicha mecha (shoots and buds) and konacha (flakes), our Hojicha One Cup Teabags will brew a lighter-bodied tea than the loose leaf versions. Packaged in a wide pyramid-shape sachet, the tea leaves have a lot of space to expand. The result is a simple and authentic cup of Japanese tea every time.
How to Prepare
Add one hojicha teabag to a cup, pour on boiling water, and wait for 1 minute. Move the teabag around in the hot water until the tea has reached the desired strength, and you're done.
This 12-bag box, which includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese, will provide plenty of delicious tea for your enjoyment at home or at work.
The amount of tea in the teabag is simply not enough for a cup of tea. You really have to use 2 bags to get enough flavor.
This tea is amazing! I am trying to expand my knowledge of green teas and I was pleasantly surprised by its taste. I chatted with one of your consultants and she suggested I try this after having tried a Gyokuro which we also loved. Ippodo Tea has wonderful products, great customer service, beautiful packaging and I feel privileged to be able to buy this in the US.
Just perfect for early fall.
