Roasted (Hojicha)

“The key point of brewing Roasted (Hojicha) is to use a boiling water.”

Roasted Green Tea (Hojicha) is a type of tea which has a toasty flavor with refreshing aftertaste. Roasted in a high temperature, Sencha will be decaffeinated and at the same time, toasty flavor which is specific to Hojicha will be absorbed. Because it is low in caffeine, Hojicha is preferable for children and elder people to drink. Bancha, such as Hojicha is said that it was originally made from “Bangaicha (tea for daily use)” and that may be why it is loved by so many people as a daily drinking tea. Many people prefer Hojicha for its rising aroma at the moment of hot water being poured as well as its taste. Simple brewing steps compared to Sencha or Gyokuro may be one of the reasons to be chosen as a daily drink.
