Selected leaves pan-roasted blend of Sencha and Kukicha gives this high grade typically Japanese roasted Hojicha. Smoky, aromatic, mild and a touch of sweetness. Lower caffeine content compared to regular steamed green tea.
CAN BE BREWED COLD
I was tired of ordering random matcha and hojicha teas from Amazon and in-stores that didn't taste like the real thing. This place however, was very good. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants authentic teas straight from Japan.
Especially great in the afternoon or evening because of its lower caffeine content. Love this tea!
Really enjoyed this Hojicha, normally good for about 2 infusions.
I have only had hojicha in these tiny cheap prepared teabags before so I really liked this loose leaf because the flavors were more nuanced and complex. It’s a nice slightly sweet, roasted, low caffeine tea good for anytime of day. I couldn’t get much flavor when I followed the brewing instructions so I used more tea and longer brew times for my desired effect.
