Additional Information

Preparing Hojicha is probably the most casual of all. Hojicha is a is not a “tightly packed” tea, so it may look as if you are putting twice as much tealeaves in the pot, but due to the fact that it is light in weight (about half the weight of Sencha), don’t be shy in using a nice heap. To make a pot for 4 or 5, use 3 large teaspoons worth of Hojicha. Use boiling water, and feel free to pour it directly onto the tealeaves. Brew time is 30 seconds.

Product Review

  1. Hojicha is produced by roasting bancha or kukicha over high heat. The result is a savory tea with a refreshing and roasty taste and virtually no bitterness. The degree of roastiness in the aroma and flavor will depend on whether the tea is lightly or more deeply roasted. Unlike other Japanese teas, hojicha has a distinct reddish-brown appearance in the cup. Lower in caffeine, it makes a great after-dinner tea.
