    i am so happy that i chanced upon tealife because they really carry some of the best japanese teas i’ve ever had! this houjicha is of exceptional quality — its aroma invades your surroundings the moment you open the pack and i really like how the taste isn’t overpowering yet still very fragrant in every sip. i drink this most mornings and it’s done a superb job in kickstarting my day on the right note! also, the biggest thank you to yuki for being an ever patient, friendly and fantastic seller, always entertaining all the questions that i have. it’s been an absolute joy shopping here and i would definitely be back for more!! ;-)

    Tried this during the Christmas sale and was amazed by the smell of the leaves and the tea. Definitely a must try for the hojicha heads out there.

    Was able to buy this during the sale. Yes as the other reviews say, it has nice and strong nutty aromas. It's a good tea.

    the aroma...

    Posted by na on 30th Dec 2020

    Honestly I was stunned at how powerful the aroma of the tea came into my nose when i first opened the package. You can almost feel the particles rushing into your nose... that's how strong they felt! It's actually unlike any Houjicha I was accustomed to. Very flowery and nutty smell - unlike the damp kind of smell that other Houjicha I've tasted before might have. My recommendation is to drink the tea when it's cooled down a little, I think It's hard to taste the tea when it's boiling temperature. Superb tea in my opinion, highly recommended.

    If you like roasted teas and nutty aromas, then I would highly recommend this. I love inhaling the nutty aromas of this tea. The taste is great too!

Koudoen's premium Kaga-bou Houjicha will wake you up with its astonishingly rich aroma of roasted twig-tea. The complex mixture of high floral aromatics compliment a clear, mild and heartwarming drink. Enjoy the richness coming from the luxurious usage of 100% Ichibancha*, and the heritage of the Kaga-boucha**.

Origin: Ishikawa, Japan
Area Brand: Kaga-Boucha
Ingredients: 100% pure tea leaves. That's all.

The premium Kaga Bou-Hojicha is a Houjicha made from Twig tea. 


It's a premium quality tea made from Ichibancha. This is the first flush of leaves, or leaves picked from the first harvesting season of the year. Ichibancha is characterized by significantly higher levels of nutrients and taste, and is rare to be used for Houjicha.


Great mindfulness choice. Perfect tea for a healthy, relaxing moment and to relieve your stress.


Try all three types of Kaga-Boucha in this following discounted bundle.

- Kaga-Boucha bundle

** The innovation and invention of twig-based Houjicha originates in the Kaga area (where it is Ishikawa today), hence is called the Kaga-boucha.
