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 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!
Great quality and incredible flavor. This was the first time I tried Ocha and it won't be my last. Keep up the good work!
