Hojicha is a roasted green tea. Low in caffeine, but high in toastiness! Great hot or cold, and goes well with milk.
Tasting Notes: Earthy, nutty, toasty
Pairing Notes: Chocolate, citrus, sweets
Fun Fact: Originated by stingy Japanese tea merchants who wanted to make use of the fannings and twigs of their teas.
How to Brew: Sift 1.5 teaspoons of hojicha in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon of 170ºF water. Whisk vigorously to make a paste; it should have the consistency of peanut butter with no clumps. Then add 2.5 tablespoons of hot water to the paste and whisk vigorously, until any remaining clumps disappear.
Each tin contains 30 grams of hojicha - approximately 15-20 servings. Tin sealed for freshness.
