Hojicha - Roasted Organic Green Tea a rare and interesting tea is not easy to find and our growers are particularly happy to supply to  us.

It is distinctive from other Japanese green teas because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over a charcoal fire, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed. The tea is fired at a high temperature, altering the leaf colour from it's traditional green to reddish brown.

Hōjicha infusions have a light to reddish brown appearance and are less astringent due to losing catechins during the roasting process.

The roasted flavours come through and give this tea a distinctive caramel like flavour.

Because of its mildness, Hōjicha is a popular tea to serve during the evening meal or after, before going to sleep.

Cup Colour: golden/amber.
Brewing time: 1-3 min.
Certified Organic.
