From Yamamotoyama

Hoji-cha is a roasted green tea. The roasting process alters the leaf color to a reddish brown and reduces the amount of caffeine. The result yields a fresh and smooth tasting tea.

To brew, use 3 grams (approx. 1tbsp) in 200-240ml (approx. 1 cup) at 80°C – 90°C (176°F – 194°F) for 0.5 – 1 min.

First hojicha and I quite like it. Quite different than green or black tea.

Nice roasted, smoky flavor. Delicious to warm up with at night since it has little caffeine.

I use near boiling water, for only 30 seconds.

180 F 2 min; resteep 3 min. Golden infusion, flavors of moss, smoke, touch of caramel. Hoji-cha is traditional Japanese “roasted green tea.” To me, its uniqueness lies precisely in that counterpoint of greenness to toastiness. These tea leaves were harvested in Uji and Shizuoka, Japan.

Nice and toasty. Did 2 steeps for 1:30 and 2:00, 1 tsp for a 7oz cup at 180 degrees.

Steeped 180 F water for 2 and a half minutes. This is a standard loose leaf Hoji-cha, maybe a little bland. Still enjoyable.
