From Tribute Tea Company

Hojicha was popularized in Kyoto in the 1920’s. Unlike traditional Japanese greens, which are steamed, Hojicha is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. Most leaves of this variety are derived from a standard bancha tea, but this special variety is actually a roasted Kukicha twig. The result is a toasty, woodsy aroma and notes of caramelized sugar…

Notes: caramel, charcoal, maple

Infusion: 180ºF / 82ºC for 30 seconds

Origin: Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan
