When my kid left for college, they left behind an opened bag of Ocha & Co. Organic Japanese Hojicha Green Tea that had been gifted to them by some friends from Japan. I ran out of my usual herbal tea and thought I'd try the Ocha & Co green tea. I couldn't believe how delicious it was! Very delicate and subtle flavor and no matter how long I steep it, it never tastes over-brewed or bitter like other teas. It's green tea perfection. I'm giving a bag away to my best friend and ordering another bag for myself right now. This is my go-to tea from here on out that I will *always* have on hand. Now I drink it daily and always have something special to serve to guests. Thank you!
It’s simply the best Sencha tea I have ever had (and I’ve had a lot).
Hojicha is my new favorite morning beverage. I recently stopped drinking green tea due to certain dietary restrictions prohibiting caffeine and having Hojicha as an alternative delicious tea to sit in ritual with helped a lot! I love the lightly smoky flavor and yet I can’t help but taste a little bit of sweetness there too. The smell is so pleasant.
I researched low caffeine tea options and found the holicha tea option. Reviews were pretty good so I tried it out. This tea is on the extreme side of "earthy" for my taste. Even sweetened, which I do not normally do, it was not tolerable to my taste buds. As reference, I drink macha in the morning, robust black tea and delicate green teas during the day. Hojicha was just not my cup of tea.
Hojicha, unlike regular green tea is a roasted green tea with a slightly smoky flavor. It is not for everyone. I noticed that you have ordered over 10 times with us so some of our other teas are to your liking. Thank you for being a valued customer.
I drink this every night before going to bed. It makes your stomach really comfortable!
