Hojicha Tea

What is Hojicha Tea?

Low caffeine Hojicha tea

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.

Doesn’t get any better than Ocha & Co.

Thanks for offering the low caffeine teas (Hojicha & Kukicha) so I can drink more of this wonderful premium teas day or night. I like to brew a large amount so i have it ready to drink hot or cold. Pictured is the brewed Kukicha tea which was the first tea I tried from you. Every new tea I try is a new experience.

Great flavour and fresh tea leaves

I have bought Japanese green tea (gyokuro in particular) from Ocha and Co several times. I like how it comes vaccuum sealed, and the leaves are very fresh. It smells and tastes amazing. Would definitely come back here for more in the future.
