Hojicha Dark Roast
Roasted green tea, Japan

Roasted almonds, burnt toffee, tree-bark, tobacco, hint of licorice
Hojicha is a roasted Japanese green tea made with mature leaves and stalks. This June 2019 harvest hojicha is heavily roasted, turning the leaves into a deep brown colour, almost completely eliminating the caffeine content and transforming its flavour profile. Its glowing-bronze liquor reveals warming notes of roasted nuts, burnt toffee, wood and hints of tobacco and licorice.

Its low caffeine content and mellow flavour make it the perfect choice for a relaxing, after-dinner drink.

Grown and crafted by Obubu Tea Farm, Kyoto, Japan - an agricultural social venture with a strong focus on high quality tea, community contribution and tea education.

Preparation: Steep for 2 - 3minutes at 90°. Two infusions.
