“NO.1 in fragrance – the king of Japanese flavored teas”

Hojicha (roasted green tea) in created using the leaves of teas such as bancha, kukicha, and low-grade teas. After the final stage of production, the leaves are roasted at high temperature to bring out the fragrance. Hojicha has a brown color, is low in caffeine and catechin, and has no bitter taste. It has a fragrant and refreshing flavor.

・・・・ABOUT RANK・・・・

For the frequently-asked questions about the grade A~S, each grade is mainly defined by “Production area x Tea farmer x Crop quality in the season”.

Tea fairs are held in Japan and the tea grades such as aroma, a liquid color degree of a leaf color, and flavor in each season are decided as comprehensive evaluation by the most professional among professionals. Thus, please understand that the grade A~S can be decided in order from the best for each season. There is no grading system by light-steam, normal-steam, and deep-steam as often mentioned. Instead, normal-steam primarily created by Souen Nagatani is original as green tea. Because a tea processed for deep-steamed tea was not a good quality tea due to a strong taste of bitterness and astringency, a deep-steamed production process was developed. As indicated by the Japanese word “WabiSabi”, the pronounced flavor of green tea (even a plain-flavor appearance like a local cuisine of Kyoto) will be preferred in Uji as a main tea growing center.

As described above, since a tea quality does not depend on production process (e.g. Level of steam), it is not always true that a tea would be good if paying for higher value so determining a tea quality can definitely be difficult without a distinguishing insight for tea contents. It will be the best if our insight with the Uji history can assist you to absolutely select and enjoy a delicious tea.

    It smells smoky. Is it normal? I drink Hojicha tea for first time, so I don’t know if it is normal or not. Taste is very flat. I like it, though.

    Thankful for this product. I started 2 cups a day and months later I drink 2 to 3 cups a day. I’m able to drink it without sugar or any sweetener when I try it without mixing any sweetener the results are good compare to mix it with any sugar or sweetener.

    I drink many teas but I like roasted tea. It has a nice smoky toasty kind of aroma. Very different from standard green tea. The leaves are very clean after taste. Perfect for me.
