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.

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.

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.

How to prepare hot

  • Put 1 teabag into a pot or other large container and add 10 oz (300 ml) of boiled water
  • Wait about 2 minutes before drinking

Wonderful

This tea is wonderfully delicious especially when the weather is cold. I am a repeat buyer of this tea. My family has drank thru 9 full packages of one-pot Obukucha (Good Fortune tea) and a couple of the 100g loose tea packages since the start of its season. I ordered 4 more one-pot packages because I fear it would sell out soon as it ends its season. I usually purchase their hojicha and genmaicha which is wonderful as well, but since this is a seasonal tea, I decided to try it. My first purchase of Obukucha was actually at the Ippodo shop on Teramachi-dori in Kyoto. I was excited when it became available on Ippodo USA. I highly recommend.

Lovely tea!

This is a convenient way to enjoy delicious obukucha and I've gotten 2 good, full-bodied pots from one bag, with a last steep that is a little weaker. Beautiful genmaicha for the new year that shouldn't be missed!
