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!

In addition to regular hojicha tea leaves, hojicha is available as a konacha ("flakes" from dried leaves) called Hoji-ko. An interesting feature of Hoji-ko is that it can be easily made by putting some flakes onto a tea strainer, and pouring hot water through it into a teacup. This same method can be used to easily make a large batch of hojicha for an office or party setting. Simple and flavorful-such is Hoji-ko!
