HOJICHA | ROASTED GREEN TEA
HOJICHA | ROASTED GREEN TEA | JAPANESE GREEN TEA

HOJICHA | ROASTED GREEN TEA | JAPANESE GREEN TEA

Regular price $15.35 $0.00

Hojicha, is a popular Japanese green tea which is actually ‘BROWN’. This unique tea is made by roasting green tea leaves, producing a distinctive brown colour. 

A fragrant tea, with a smoky and savory flavour and a light, sweet lingering aftertaste. The roasting process removes the caffeine in Hojicha, similar to a decaf coffee, making it a perfect evening tea or an all-day tea which can be enjoyed hot and cold.

 

Ingredients:

Green tea 

Origin:

Kyoto, Japan

Steeping guide:

Tea: 5g Water: 90 C, 1cup Time: 30-60 sec

Recommended number of steeping - 2+

How to prepare:

There is no set rule for brewing tea because each tea type is different.

This is a rough guide to get you started. Please experiment to find your ideal steeping time based on your personal taste.

Before preparing any type of tea always warm the teapot and tea cups by rinsing it with hot water.

Put 5 g of tea in the preheated tea pot and add water at 90 C over the leaves in a circular manner so that  all the leaves are wet .Let it steep for 30-60 seconds.

When brewing in a tea pot please pour the tea out in cups until the last drop to avoid over steeping the tea left in the teapot as this will result in a unpleasant and bitter flavor.

Don’t throw out your tea leaves after your first cup of tea. The same tea leaves can be steeped up to three times. Discover the nuances of tea with every infusion.

For the second infusion, increase water temperature to 95 C and steep for only 30 seconds. It is a quick steep because the leaves are already wet and have brewed after the first infusion.

Increase the water temperature to 100 C for the third infusion and let it steep for 1-11/2 minutes to extract all the flavour from the tea leaves.

Thank you!

This tea has been beautiful. I love the rich, warming flavour. And it is low in caffeine, so can be enjoyed at any time.

I was exceptionally pleased with the woman I met (the owner of this business) as she was so sincere and lovely.
I went in to pick up my tea at Teavine House.
She greeted me with warmth and expressed with such grace true passion.
What a wonderful experience!
I very much recommend supporting this business.

Thank you Shannon for your lovely review. It was very nice meeting you and I look forward to seeing you again soon :)

Uplifting and Rejuvenating

Hojicha is delicious, nothing like I've had before. I found this green tea distinctly different than other green teas. One cup led to another and I really enjoyed the sweet after taste. It had just the right amount of caffeine to pick me up from a midday slump. I will definitely be buying this one soon!
