Obukucha One-Pot Teabags - 9 Bags
Obukucha is a genmaicha that combines the light sweetness of high grade yanagi leaves with the heartiness of roasted rice.
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.
New this year
These large size teabags are made using the same tea as our loose-leaf Obukucha. Use this package to quickly and easily prepare hot tea for holiday dinners, teatime, and other occasions this winter. The package is re-sealable for freshness, and it comes printed with instructions and a description of the tea in English and Japanese.
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.
