Hojicha is a roasted green tea from Japan made from Bancha leaves - the summer crop of Sencha consisting of coarser leaves and stems. The high heat treatment diminishes tannins and caffeine in the leaves, making Hojicha an excellent tea for evenings and those sensitive to caffeine. Toasty nutty flavour is easy to pair with food (you will often find Hojicha on Japanese restaurant menus). This tea is warming and soothing, a real comfort drink for any time of the day.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 82°C for 2 minutes.

fresh from origin

Land is a scarce resource in Japan, making all agriculture a pricey endeavor. So it became essential for the Japanese farmer to extract as much value from each tea bush as possible. Necessity being the mother of invention, the Japanese have been ingenious at devising tea varieties that are unheard of in countries more land-endowed. Hojicha is a result of this ingenuity. Hojicha is made from late-summer Bancha leaves, which are roasted to give them a smooth, warm nutty flavour. It was the invention of a Kyoto tea merchant in 1920 who had a batch of aging tea he didn't want to waste.
