    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.

    An excellent and unusual Japanese tea which is very low in caffeine for those who are concerned about that.  It seems impossible to over brew or to get poor results from this tea, which has a very rich, smooth taste completely lacking in bitterness even when using 195 degree water and 2 minute brew time. It is also an excellent value.

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

    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.
