Hojicha is a toasted green tea with a sweet and nutty flavor. It is well-suited as an evening drink as it has a low caffeine content. The twigs and leaves are gathered from the surplus ingredients from the production of gyokuro and sencha. Still flavorsome and delicate, they are then toasted to become Hojicha.
Includes 12 teabags. Use one teabag of 2.5 grams of loose leaf tea for 500-750ml water, and brew for 2-3 minutes.
