Obukucha (Good Fortune Tea) is now available!

Drinking Obukucha to usher in the New Year is a tradition that began in Kyoto over 1000 years ago during the Heian period, and continues to this day. A cup of Obukucha is said to bring happiness for the year.
The Obukucha offered by each Japanese green tea shop differs depending on the shop. At IPPODO, our Obukucha is a premium Genmaicha, packaged in Japan’s traditional festive colors of red and white.
Obukucha is on sale now, and will be sold until January 15th, while supplies last. Available in four different sizes, it makes a nice holiday gift for that special someone.
