Hojicha is an unique green tea originating from Japan. It consists primarily of Bancha, green tea leaves roasted over glowing charcoal at a high temperature, leaving a gorgeous amber brown colour. The flavour assumes a roasted and beautiful nut-like tone.
Hojicha tea tastes light, and at the same time extremely roasted, without bitterness. The roasting gives an interesting, original flavour that can be enjoyed hot or even as an iced tea.
