Jou Yanagi Houjicha | 上柳ほうじ茶

Uji bancha green tea leaves

    Late harvest Uji bancha is drum roasted until reaching a deep brown, almost black hue. Incredibly fragrant and easy drinking, this is the perfect winter cup.

    This hojicha is sourced from the venerable Kyoto tea shop, Ryuouen. After several years of visiting them and expressing interest in carrying their products, Ryuouen has entrusted Kettl Tea to become their only wholesaler outside of Japan. We cherish this opportunity and the friendship, guidance and delicious tea they provide us.

    the best houjicha ever!

    I’ve been a consumer of kukicha and houjicha for many years now, and this one is the best I’ve ever had. Full flavored, refreshing, lots of complex notes to the flavor…

    Ridiculously Good

    Kettl’s selection of hojichas are simply so good. I’ve tried this one and their special collaboration and they both have such a depth of flavor. They are nuanced and unique and truly showcase the best of Japan’s teas. Plus the shipping is quick and easy and great customer service. What more can you ask for?

    Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
