What is Hojicha?

While most of the world is now familiar with green tea, and even matcha powdered green tea, hojicha may be less familiar outside of Japan. This aromatic roasted version of Japanese green tea makes for a versatile healthy drink that fits into many lifestyles.

Maruyoshi has been dedicated to Hojicha in Japan for over a century, and is now excited to share our expertise internationally.

A few of the kind words we receive from customers and partners.

Hiro K.

Customer, Japan

I have been a customer for many years and have always been satisfied with Maruyoshi's hojicha products. I would recommend to any hojicha lovers, as well as anyone who wants to add something new and unique to their tea collection.


Customer, USA

I already drink a lot of green tea, but this hojicha is a nice change of pace. The roasted tea gives a smoother flavor and great fragrance. Lower caffeine is also nice so I can enjoy later in the evening. Quality product that I look forward to buying again!

Helen R.

Shop owner, UK

It's a joy to have direct access to quality Japanese tea producers. Hojicha is somewhat lesser known here than sencha or matcha, but most people who try it are pleasantly surprised as it is smoother without the bitter edge of fresh green tea, and with a fabulous earthy aroma.
