A green tea roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. The process gives the tea a caramel-like flavour and appearance. Hojicha is produced using a 3rd flush Bancha style leaf, known in the tea business as Sanbancha.The plucked leaves are steamed and dried in a style similar to that of Sencha. Next the dried leaf is roasted over a low heat - the low roasting temperature imparts a sweet taste and lovely fresh aroma. (Hojicha that has been roasted at too high of a temperature will lose much of its sweetness.) This roasting process results in a tea with a reddish colour and light cup with a very unique flavour. Try pairing our Hojicha with Asian themed meals and notice how well it cleanses the palate. A refreshing tea that is as good hot as it is poured over ice. What's more the roasting process removes much of the tea's caffeine.

a moss-strewn forest floor in a cup with an undertone of baked bread. The finish is long-lasting....

This tea is wild. There is a very woodsy element to it and it is strikingly yeasty and earthy
