From High Teas

A green tea roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. The process gives the tea a caramel-like flavour and appearance. Hojicha is produced using a 3rd flush Bancha style leaf known in the tea business as Sanbancha.The plucked leaves are steamed and dried in a style similar to that of Sencha. Next the dried leaf is roasted over a low heat-the low roasting temperature imparts a sweet taste and nice fresh aroma. (Hojicha that has been roasted at too high of a temperature will lose much of its sweetness.) This roasting process results in a tea with a reddish color and light cup with a very unique flavour. Try pairing our Hojicha with Asian themed meals and notice how well it cleanses the palate- a refreshing tea that is as good hot as it is poured over ice. What’s more the roasting process removes much of the tea’s caffeine.

This is a tea with a very long-lingering aftertaste. It is a very lightly smoky, very very earthy tea. Like a scoop of wet earth and stone in a cup. There’s something I can’t place in the aroma and flavour; it is the key feature that stands out and yet I can’t place it — it’s not merely vegetal but something exceedingly so. It isn’t grassy but tastes of dirt. In the nicest possible way.
