Taste notes

Obukucha is a special release genmaicha, made with higher grade green tea leaves than our year-round Genmaicha. The result is a tea with a fuller-bodied, sweeter green tea character and a hint of roasted rice. Just like our other genmaicha blends, you can enjoy sipping this tea lightheartedly throughout the day and with meals.

Obukucha

In Japan, the important New Year’s holiday is an occasion to gather with family—which of course calls for tea. We release this Obukucha exclusively around the holiday season, as a tea to drink in celebration of the arrival of a new year.

In fact, the name Obukucha means “Good Fortune Tea.” In Japan, Obukucha has been enjoyed for over 10 centuries as a tradition at New Year’s, to bring good luck and good health in the coming year. We hope that you and your loved ones enjoy this tea in happiness and health, while looking towards the new year.

Glad that superstition got me to buy this tea

I always do certain things for New Year to keep my luck. I do add things to my traditions when I hear about other good luck traditions. Saw this tea and ordered it last year. This will definitely be a tradition because the tea is very nice. Plus it is something that my Mom would have drank when she was around. Nice and light. Like the subtleness and very faint lemon? I know I just like it. lol
