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 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!

I love to close my eyes and inhale the deeply flavorful aroma before I have my first sip. Hojicha is great for the afternoon as it has less caffeine than other green teas and doesn't disturb my sleep.
pleasant surprise for my first taste of hojicha tea. full of aroma and flavor as described, especially for such a short steep time. a nice roasty comfort tea.
