A special holiday release, this set pairs our winter-exclusive genmaicha Obukucha, with the popular roasted green tea Hojicha.
This holiday gift set pairs two of our favorite teas to drink in winter. Serve aromatic and light-bodied Obukucha at a festive dinner with family and friends. When you come in from the cold, warm up with rich, plentiful Hosen and some cookies at teatime. Packaged in a Japanese paper box and hand-wrapped with Japanese paper, this set makes for a thoughtful gift.
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. Obukucha is a genmaicha that combines the light sweetness of high grade yanagi leaves with the heartiness of roasted rice. Choose this tea for a fuller-bodied genmaicha that is satisfying in the heart of winter.
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.
