Taste Notes

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.

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.

Simply the best

I was introduced to Hojicha by my dear Japanese friends and fell in love with it's unique flavour. Every days starts with a very large pot or two of this beautuful tea. I am seriously addicted to it and cannot imagine life without this delightful refreshment in my life. Thanks for being so efficient with my orders, especially because I live in a very remote South Pacific Island.

Wonderful, full, rich

I think this tea has ruined all other tea for me because it's so good. It is rich and strong but not bitter! Great roasted flavor. Great hot or cold if you don't drink it all at once. I think I prefer this to coffee now.

Just the thing for a rainy day

The scent when you open the packet is heavenly. The roasted scent and flavor gives it almost coffee-like notes, without the bitterness. Warming, nutty, caramelly stuff going on, and it was just as nice when it had cooled in the cup. I may have to try a cold brew steep with this one. Delicious!
