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.

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 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.
