Kasuga Yakuso-ten focuses on preserving and respecting nature, keeping the Japanese tea tradition alive through its hand-picked and dried teas. While 97% of tea grown in Japan is an improved species, Kasuga Yakuso-ten specializes in growing the original heirloom species of tea that came from China. Tea and medicinal herbs have a rich tradition in the Mt. Ibuki area of Gifu Prefecture, starting over 1,000 years ago. A famous feudal lord of the area, Oda Nobunaga, even had a private herb garden there. Kasuga Yakuso-ten uses traditional methods to grow and harvest their tea leaves, without the use of any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Thus, all their tea products are completely organic. 

Tenpyo Bijin Hojicha 

This aromatic hojicha is made by delicately roasting green tea leaves and contains a lower in caffeine content and rich umami flavor. This tea is made from a blend of the heirloom tea and less than 20% of Yabukitaanother locally grown tea which creates a great combination of flavors. 

The tea is harvested in the Mt. Ibuki Kasuga area, which has been known for its high-quality herb production for a millennium. The area’s tea leaves are rich in amino acids, producing deep umami flavor.  

Hojicha is a specialty roasted green tea. Its roasting process results in a reduction in caffeine, making this tea suitable for drinking any time of day or night. It is also a tea that children can enjoy as well. 

Recommended brewing methods:  

Hot: Place 1 tea bag in a tea cup or small tea pot. Boil water and let cool until it is around 195 F (90 C) degrees and then pour 7 – 10 fl.oz (200 – 300 ml) of the water into vessel with tea bag and steep for 2 minutes.
