Hojicha, made from roasted Bancha, is one of the most consumed green teas in Japan. The roasting removes the astringency of the green tea, giving Hojicha an infusion with rich toasted and nutty tasting notes. Hojicha contains the lowest level of caffeine in Japanese teas.
It is ideal for relaxation due to its low caffeine content.

Rich toasted, nutty flavours
Hojicha combines the freshness of Japanese teas with roasted flavours due to roasting. It is a perfect accompaniment to citrus fruits due to its full-bodied, roasted and caramel flavour. It is also excellent with milk.
