It is the green tea that does not look like a green tea and the reason for that is because rather than being steamed in the early processing stage it has been roasted. Hojicha it quite a general term for roasted green tea and can be made from the leaves and stems leftover from the production of Sencha. It is a brown color rather than the green found in regular green tea with a mild, sweet caramel flavour rather than vegetal. Low in caffeine it is a popular afternoon or early evening drink and often the tea of choice for Japanese mothers when making tea for their children.
Speedy delivery of great and refreshing tea. I have tried many teas from many different companies but this is the one I have settled with. The quality is as good as it gets for Japanese organic teas. My only concern is where the tea is actually sourced from within Japan as they don't seem to say on the website.
Love Ocha and Company and this tea is no excpetion!
I have been drinking tea for years. Ocha and Co is definitely my go to for great Japanese teas. I normally drink their Fukamushicha and their genma matcha. I wanted to try the hojicha and it did not disappoint, it’s a gentle and wonderful tea which you can enjoy hot or cold!
We love this tea and will keep buying it!
