Green tea from Japan that is rendered dark brown through a roasting method. This tea has a toasty, nutty flavor and a slight mesquite note. The Earthy infusion has a warm quality with a soothing, clean finish that pairs wells with savory foods. Hojicha is mainly comprised of the stems that held the leaves used for Bancha tea and because of this, the caffeine content is considerably less than regular green tea. For those who are not fans of the grassy, vegetable taste that a lot of Japanese green teas have, this is your tea!
