Taste notes

This organic hojicha is a blend of roasted organic leaves and stems that brew a classic hojicha character. It is a relatively light-bodied hojicha with a balanced flavor and a brisk, woodsy aroma. You can enjoy sipping it lightheartedly throughout the day and with meals.

Ippodo's organic selection

Our organic teas are produced in the Kyoto tea production region and are certified organic by the JAS. (The USDA recognizes JAS organic certification as an equivalent standard to USDA organic certification.) We have selected each organic variety to meet Ippodo standards for authentic Japanese green tea flavor, aroma, and color. Additionally, compared to our other tea blends, the weather and other growing factors lead to greater differences in the character of our organic teas every year. Discovering this year's unique characteristics is one of the delights of these teas.


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!
