Roasted Green Tea
※Tea caddy is not included in this item.
While most of the world is now familiar with green tea, and even matcha powdered green tea, hojicha may be less familiar outside of Japan. This aromatic roasted version of Japanese green tea makes for a versatile healthy drink that fits into many lifestyles. Hojicha’s roasting process helps reduce much of the caffeine contained in tea leaves. People are attracted to hojicha by the aroma which, across the many varieties of hojicha, can range from sweet and fruity to deep roasted. The roasting process also generates an aromatic component called pyrazine, which provides a pleasant calming effect, aiding in relaxation, but also helping to stimulate blood circulation. This makes hojicha a perfect choice for an evening drink, or simply for quiet relaxation.
