Hojicha One-Cup Teabags
Produced from hojicha buds and flakes, this single-serving teabag has an authentic character, with a soothing roasted aroma.
When you drink hojicha for the first time, you might be surprised that it is a green tea. Dark amber in color, this roasted bancha releases an amazingly rich aroma that completely permeates the room. The savory flavor is very distinct; it is rich but 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, hojicha is an absolute favorite among Ippodo patrons. It can also be enjoyed chilled!
Made from hojicha mecha (shoots and buds) and konacha (flakes), our Hojicha One Cup Teabags will brew a lighter-bodied tea than the loose leaf versions. Packaged in a wide pyramid-shape sachet, the tea leaves have a lot of space to expand. The result is a simple and authentic cup of Japanese tea every time.
How to prepare
Add one hojicha teabag to a cup, pour on boiling water, and wait for 1 minute. Move the teabag around in the hot water until the tea has reached the desired strength, and you're done.
This 12-bag box, which includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese, will provide plenty of delicious tea for your enjoyment at home or at work.

The hojicha flavor is good. Balanced and not an astringent roasted flavor. The bags are an easy, quick way to get a lovely cup of brewed hojicha. I think the packaging could be more special to make the item gift worthy, but once the tea is in the cup, no one can tell anyway. 😉 I had second thoughts about gifting it and kept it for personal enjoyment for this reason.
My favorite tea! The bags are convenient for travel so I don’t have to miss my tea when away from home. I used to drink regular black tea but live how soft and non-tannic this roasted tea is. The aroma is heavenly.
It is so wonderful to be able to pop a Hojicha teabag into a cup of boiled water for instant smoky bliss - and little to no caffeine! Perfect for a late-evening cup of relaxing tea!
Love this tea. It’s so earthy. Makes feel warm and cozy.
Wonderful tea! A bit like comfort food - tea that envelops you with its warmth, richness and roasted flavor. Perfect tea on a cold afternoon.
