Description

Hojicha is a unique Japanese tea that was originally created in Kyoto about a hundred years ago. It is roasted at high heat in a porcelain pot over charcoal; instead of steamed like most other Japanese teas. This high temperature roasting process produces a lovely reddish-brown coloured leaf and a light toasted, nutty, sweet and slightly caramel-like flavor.

When you open the bag the aroma is similar to toasted rice, sweet, dark, rich, and has herbaceous floral notes. Roasting the leaves creates a tea with a much lower caffeine content than green tea, making hojicha an incredibly popular after dinner tea, or relaxing evening tea.

Its mild flavor makes this brew incredibly complimentary, hojicha truly is a wonderful tea for anytime of the day.

I know the superior is probably "better" but I much prefer this hojicha for it's savoury richness. The first wash is almost like soup. It survives three washes with the final wash hinting at the qualities of the pre-roasted tea. It's a great all day drinking tea, but it shines with dinner.
