Stems Hojicha One-Pot Teabags
Our large size hojicha teabags use just roasted tea stems, which produces a unique crisp, round, and hearty character brew.
We filled each of these wide pyramid teabags with our roasted stems green tea, Kuki Hojicha. These teabags brew a classic hojicha that is amber in color. In comparison to our loose leaf Gokujo Hojicha, Kuki Hojicha has a unique “stems” character- round, hearty, and crisp.
Hojicha - popular and easy to prepare
These large size teabags allow you to quickly and easily prepare fragrant hojicha for yourself or a group of friends. The package is re-sealable for freshness, and it comes printed with instructions and a description of the tea in English and Japanese.
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!
