In Japan, Hojicha is one of the most popular everyday teas, along with Sencha. It has smooth and mellow roasted nut flavor created by roasting process of green tea.
It is quite healthy drink which contains much Catechin and Vitamin C and only a small amount of Caffeine. Because of the low Caffeine and soothing properties, Houjicha can be drunk in the evening and can be given to very young children in Japan.
Besides, Houjicha is perfect for iced tea. It will cool you on a sizzling hot day.
Unlike other common Hojicha in the market, Only the highest grade (first harvested, or pruned after harvesting Shincha) tea leaves was used for our Hojicha.The leaves are only lightly roasted to maximize the essential flavor of the tea leaves. The flavor is very smooth and the aroma lingers nicely for a while.

Preparation: 2 teaspoons, 95C(203F), 1 min
