For those who love hojicha, we also offer Stems Hojicha – a stems-only version of hojicha. Compared to our regular Gokujo Hojicha, Stems Hojicha has a deeper roasted 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 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.

Very roasty

When I don't want to drink coffee in the afternoon, I turn to tea. Kuki hojicha gives a very similar feeling to coffee -- roasty, warm, full bodied -- with much less caffeine. For hojicha with even more body, I grind up the stems into a fine powder and sift, like preparing matcha. This way of preparation is very good for lattes.

So comforting

I really am a fan of roasted / smoked teas in general, and hojicha has long been a favorite in this category. Ippodo's regular hojicha and in particular their outstanding kuki version is such a satisfying cup after a meal or at the end of the day. So glad it's now available domestically! :)

My Favorite Tea! Kuki Hojicha!

I’ve tried most of the Ippodo tea products but think I like the Kuki Hojicha the best! It’s the one I always go back to but honestly their isn’t a bad product in the shop! Everything I’ve had is top quality and really tasty! Ippodo Mugicha, Genmaicha, Iribancha and Kuki Hojicha are household staples in my house!
