The pleasant roasted flavor of Hojicha comes from gentle pan-roasting of the tea leaves, imbuing a light, smoky, yet subtly sweet complexion.
The roasting process to produce Hojicha Tea results in reduced caffeine content and a total smoothness unlike that of other Japanese green teas. With very little bitterness, hojicha is often enjoyed before and after meals – even after dinner.
Freshly harvested from Uji, the prestigious center of tea-growing in Japan, our Hojicha is 100% Farm-direct. Renowned for earthen aroma, smooth-to-sip composition, and health promoting properties.
