      Organic Hōjicha

      Introducing our Organic Hōjicha from Uji, Japan, a uniquely roasted green tea that transforms into a delightful red hue with an enticing flavor profile. The roasting process not only enhances its taste but also significantly reduces its caffeine content, making it a popular choice in Japan for hospital patients and children alike.

      This Hōjicha is exceptionally versatile and is known for its refreshing qualities, especially when served iced—a common practice in Japanese restaurants. Its distinct flavor and aroma provide a comforting, almost nostalgic tea experience, appealing to tea lovers of all ages.

      Certified organic, our Hōjicha adheres to the highest standards of quality and sustainability. Each batch is carefully packaged in nitrogen-filled bags to preserve freshness and ensure that the rich, smoky essence of the tea is maintained.

      Each package contains 100 grams of this exquisite tea, inviting you to savor its refined and unique character. Whether you're a longtime tea enthusiast or new to the world of Japanese teas, our Organic Hōjicha offers a taste experience that's both invigorating and soothing.

        What are the recommended second and third infusion times?

        This tea is rather mild so there is no really particular recommended subsequent infusion times and it's not as critical as regular sencha.

        Is it possible to cold brew this tea? If yes then what is the amount of tea/water ratio?

        This is a tea we've never attempted to brew cold. You could probably do it but it's not normally brewed that way.

        What harvest is this tea made from, and which part of the plant?

        Kevin Moore

        Generally speaking, first harvest tea is not used for Hōjicha, it is used for sencha.  Our Organic Hōjicha, like most Hōjicha, is from the second harvest.  This tea is mostly leaves but some stems are used as well.

        I purchased this tea for my wife because of its very low caffeine. It exceeded my expectations. Not only is my wife able to drink it at night. But it also taste very good. We definitely will buy it again.

        Low caffeine and a comforting aroma has this as my go-to late night tea. Easy brew and tasted great iced as well.

        My favorite decaf tea. Earthy but mild in taste. No bitterness. Satisfying taste. With a little raw honey and milk added or not it's a healthy start to my day.

        A good tea for evenings because of the low caffeine amount.

        Hojicha is, undeniably, an acquired taste. I was pleasantly surprised by my first cup. Very unique and appealing. I decided to try some as it is touted as a good evening beverage for those who do not desire to be kept awake by caffeine. I read that it is a favorite of Japanese hospitals and for children. When I was ill recently, and my sleeping cycle was disrupted, I appreciated my hojicha. To me, it has a slightly smoky taste and a sweet aftertaste. It is aromatic. I plan to enjoy this tea during fall and winter.

        It is the first hojicha I tried and I have to say I like it very much. Maybe not the kind of tea I would drink everyday, usually I don't drink much roasted tea, but I really like its natural aroma, it has no bitterness, and it's a good choice when I want something different from the fresh sencha I drink every morning. Price is very good too.
