What kind of gift is it?
A set of two teas with contrasting fragrances that would be enjoyed by someone who usually drinks black tea or coffee. The aromas are soothing.
How does it taste?
Obukucha has an appetising aroma of roasted rice, and Gokujo Hojicha's distinctive sweet aroma comes from roasted tea leaves.
How/when to enjoy it?
Look forward to drinking Obukucha with toasted mochi at the New Year. Gokujo Hojicha is a good match for Western confections typically enjoyed with black tea or coffee.
Who do Ippodo staff give it to?
This set is very useful as a small gift to take when invited to a gathering towards the end of the year. Children who don't like bitter or sharp drinks will still enjoy these teas. It's a good choice for times when families get together.
What is Obukucha?
An auspicious tea for celebrating the New Year and driving away any nasty aftertaste from the year before. Its roots go back over a millennium to Kyoto in the Heian Period. The type of tea used for obukucha differs according to the tea merchant's own traditions. Ippodo's Obukucha (Good Fortune Tea) is a special blend of genmaicha. It uses higher grade green tea leaves and a smaller proportion of roasted rice than our year-round Genmaicha to bring out the flavour of the leaves.
