Mitoku Hojicha is a traditional tea with a distinctive smokey flavor and aroma. Hojicha is made from gently roasted bancha tea leaves. Refreshing and mild, Mitoku Hojicha is an ideal drink at any time of day. To prepare, pour boiling water over tea leaves (2-3 teaspoons/cup). Steep 2 minutes, or until brewed to taste. Serve hot or chilled. The leaves can be reused once. To maintain the tea’s freshness, reseal the bag after opening, and store in a cool, dry place.
