Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

Hojicha is usually made from large summer or autumn harvested bancha leaves. Obubu Tea Farms' premium Hojicha Gold is made from more delicate spring harvested sencha leaves that have been aged, creating a richer flavor.
