Japan "Hojicha" Green Tea
- ORIGIN: Kyoto, Japan
- DESCRIPTION: Specially roasted tea made from the stems of high grade tea leaves
- FLAVOR: Deeply sweet and strong roasted flavor with caramel notes
This tea is a Japanese favorite, but contrasts most other Japanese teas. In addition to being steamed, hojicha goes through a final roasting stage that leaves it with a much lower caffeine content than most other teas and gives it a strong roasted flavor.
We recommend trying this in many dimensions, as a hot or iced drink, plain or with sugar and milk, and after dinnertime after a long day.
