ROASTED GREEN TEA: Hoji-Genmaicha, Japan

| /

Roasted green tea, Japan

Flavour: rice bubbles, charred wood, toffee ~ light-bodied, low caffeine
Hoji-Genmaicha is a blend of hojicha (roasted green tea) and roasted mochi brown rice. After harvest, leaves are steamed, rolled, dried and roasted, then blended with the roasted rice.

The infused tea’s sweet and nutty fragrance draws you in. It is light in body and moreish with delicious notes of firewood, roasted nuts, toffee and rice bubbles. Its caffeine content is very low.

This June 2021 harvest is 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.

Sizes: Hoji-Genmaicha comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice
