When you drink hojicha for the first time, you might be surprised that it is one of the Japanese green teas. 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!

For the hojicha enthusiast, we offer Kuki Hojicha – a stem-version of hojicha. With all the charms of regular hojicha, Kuki Hojicha adds a richness that is found only in stems. If you love the taste of hojicha, then this is a must-try.
