Hojicha is an unusual tea to come from Japan. It is made from Bancha, whose properties are accentuated by having it roasted over glowing charcoal at a high temperature until the leaves change in colour to reddish brown, and the flavour assumes a roasted and nut-like tone. The process is said to have originated in Kyoto around 1920. The taste is light, and at the same time extremely roasted, without bitterness. The roasting gives an interesting, original flavour that is not at all reminiscent of other Japanese teas, and is very suitable with food, especially strong and oily dishes. Also Houjicha is surprisingly well suited as an iced tea.

I enjoy this tea usually after dinner at night ... its a tea that complements the flavours of the wine and food....

Houjicha is a delicious tea with a smokey flavour. It's caffeine content is apparently lower than other teas. That makes Houjicha a great tea to wind down with.
