Traditional Japanese green tea that is roasted, filling the palate with toast and caramel. Our previous Hojicha was made with Chinese green tea, but our new import is from a Japanese garden. It is a higher grade of leaf, and features a smoother finish.
Ingredients: Organic roasted green tea
Caffeine Content: Low
Water Temperature: 85C/185F
Steep Time: 1-3 mins (or can be left longer as it doesn’t get bitter as easily as steamed and pan-fired green teas)
One teaspoon per 8 ozs water
"Sweet, toasty and silky. This Hojicha is easily one of the smoothest cups of tea I have ever had the privilege to sip on. The roasted leaves smell comforting, and the amber colour of the liquor is a treat to look at. Also, try this as a latté. DO IT. "
