From Sugimoto America

To make our gourmet Hoji cha more flavorful and sweet we start with young baby stems (other green teas use low quality Bancha leaves). Then the roasting process ensures that extra sweetness rounds out the roasted flavor for green tea that stimulates the senses, not your nervous system. The caffeine content in our gourmet Hoji cha is much lower than ordinary Hoji cha because we start with tea stems that contain less caffeine. Experience the calming difference.

I was looking forward to this part of the day all day. Settling in the couch with the big kid (13) to watch Community and enjoy my toasty tea in my cast iron pot. It used to be a beer. And sometimes still is. But man, these roasty toasty teas are really good for the end of the night! And just slightly healthier…

I was entering new territory trying a roasted green tea! So I carefully studied the website before brewing my first cup. I wanted to get it right. I followed the instructions, adjusting the water temperature a bit for my own taste. I’ve never had a tea I only steeped for 45 seconds!

I took a sip, then another and another. I loved this tea!!!! It has a lovely nutty flavor – maybe a bit like chestnuts. When first brewed and still very hot, it still had a bit of the fragrance of tobacco and grass, but that quickly faded as the tea cooled. It also became sweeter and sweeter as it cooled! I have never tasted such a sweet tea that was not flavored to be sweet!

This is an awesome houjicha! Complex, sweet, mellow, smooth, delicious. I’ve had it before, but that was just one tea bag and so there wasn’t enough leaf. It could have gone longer, but it lasted three, full-flavor infusions. As good as the best houjichas I’ve had to-date (with one exception, Tencha-kuki houjicha from Den’s Tea, but that’s almost in a category of it’s own). In summary: thumbs up! Glad I have 2 oz!
