From New Mexico Tea Company

Because Hojicha is roasted it gives this tea a mellow, slightly nutty flavor. The roasting process also produces low-caffeine, making it a wonderful evening tea.

EXTRA INFO:
Hojicha has been one of the most commonly enjoyed teas in Japan since its discovery in the 1920’s. Because of its low-caffeine property, it has been enjoyed by children, the elderly, and even patients in hospitals.

INGREDIENTS:
Japanese roasted green tea

ORIGIN:
Japan

Pausing from a very busy day to write something about this little bit of heaven I drank this morning. I had tried a hojicha from Den’s tea and loved it, so I thought I’d give this a try. It’s a nutty, toasty cup of awesome. I definitely will have a stash of this in my cupboard at all times. It tops my love of genmaicha.

Ok, back to work :)

MMMMMmmmmmm I’m a big fan of all things toasty and roasty. This is no exception. For me this is a decent hojicha – it’s pretty dark roast – almost smoky. I like it.

This is my first hojicha from a sample Dexter3657 sent me. Dry it looks like nothing i’ve ever seen before. It looks like dark bark but has the shape of sencha. I brewed 1 tsp, 185F for 4 min.
It reminds me a bit of the roasted oolongs since there’s no typical green tea flavour. Definitely a roasty toasty tea. Thank-you Dexter for another great sample!

Thank you Dexter3657! I needed something low caffeine after all that matcha. Hojicha is a good option if you’re not feeling like white/green/red tea but definitely low caffeine. I went with Zen’s instructions for hojicha (since no one really gives instructions for hojicha). Two teaspoons, 203 degrees for one minute (well.. I went for two minutes). Always love a nice cup of hojicha! Roasty, toasty, a little bit sweet. I’m surprised there isn’t more flavor here though, especially with two teaspoons. The second steep I went with just boiled water and the flavor is the same. I’ll enjoy the few teaspoons remaining in my meager hojicha collection, but there are better hojicha teas out there.
