    Dark Roast Hojicha

    Size

    Made by roasting autumn harvested bancha green tea, this Hojicha has a dark brown appearance and is low in caffeine and tannins. This is an aromatic tea with a mild smoky taste and is a great tea to warm your body. This tea is produced by Shohokuen, famous in Japan for their top quality teas. The high quality of this tea makes it possible to infuse the leaves twice.

    Where is it from?:

    Uji, Japan

      Great evening tea

      This tea is great to drink in the evening, thanks to its low caffeine content. It has a complex burnt taste that lingers on the palate. For a lighter taste simply use less tea. I’ve tried this and the lighter Hojicha and see no reason to return to the light version. This version also contains less caffeine as it is roasted for longer, thus removing more caffeine.
