From Raku-Cha

Hojicha (roasted tea) – is produced by roasting Bancha or Sencha green tea over a high heat, resulting in a reddish-brown tea leaf and a light reddish-brown brew. Often served as iced tea.

Flavour: A toasty, slightly caramel-like flavour.

Feature: The lowest in caffeine and tannin, so this is a great tea for the elderly, children and sick, or as a drink before going to bed.

I had my first cup of Hojicha at Hakone in Japan. It was served for dinner and at first I wasn’t sure what it is was as it definitely did not taste like tea…sweat,mellow…slight malty, caramel-like aftertaste. A hint of vanilla at the end.

Since then I am a great lover of this tea and have it regularly in the evenings. Going to bed right after is not a problem at all.

The Japanese use very hot water for this brew and they let it steep similar to a black tea.
But play with it and adjust to your own preference.
