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
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.
My morning tea the best green tea ever! Light, sweet has a light roasted smell into it😊 definitely I will order again!
My 90 year old Mom is from Japan and loves her green tea. Going to Japantown in San Francisco is difficult for her so when I found this website I was thrilled. My Mom loves all of her teas that we ordered and we will be ordering more soon. Thank you!
