0.00

Single origin and low caffeine roasted green tea

Hojicha is a roasted green tea distinct for its full-bodied, toast-like flavour. Grown and produced in Wazuka, Kyoto, Japan, Hojicha Gold is made exclusively from spring Sencha, an usually high grade for this style of tea.

The high grade leaf and prolonged roasting process achieve minimal broken leaf during processing, resulting in a smooth tasting tea liquor that is nuanced and free of bitterness. It makes an excellent everyday drinking tea perfectly suited as a post-meal digestive or anytime indulgence.

How to brew

Hojicha is suited to kyusu, shiboridashi and western styles of brewing.

 

Tasting notes

Toasty, wheat bran, blanched almond

The roasting process utilises either charcoal or a sand technic to achieve a tea with a buttery-smooth texture, and delicious toasty, wheaten notes. Each sip lingers with a lightly smoky finish and a hint of roasted almond.

Easy to drink and approachable, it is ideal as a post-meal digestive or nightcap, or for any occasion that calls for a hearty green tea.

The same tea leaves can be re-brewed up to two times. Each infusion will reveal more of the tasting profile.
