The finest hojicha made from only the most carefully selected tea leaves. It is a very popular tea that is also used in the main teahouse.
Ito Kyuemon started in the late Edo period, in the third year of Tenpo, when the first Ito Tsuneemon Takizo was involved in the tea industry in Tahara Village Namura (currently Ujitawara Minami). Since then, they have inherited tea-making for generations, with a commitment to produce high quality tea leaves, by carefully selecting the most suitable tea leaves picked in the excellent production areas of Uji tea. Here is a place known for growing high-quality teas.
Please enjoy the color, taste and aroma of authentic Uji tea cultivated by the rich land of Uji and skillful techniques.
