Organic Hojicha

Grown at 600m in the finest tea growing region of Uji, Kyoto, this Organic Hojicha is a charcoal roasted Sencha green tea. The Sencha tea leaves are traditionally roasted quickly in a porcelain pot over a high heat in order to avoid burning the leaves and locking in a caramelized, sweet flavour.

Hojicha was originally started in Kyoto in the 1920s by tea traders and has increased in popularity ever since. The flavours are very similar to that of a lightly roasted coffee but with a far lower tannic quality and a very low caffeine content. The roasting process burns off a lot of the caffeine which is why Hojicha is often enjoyed in the evenings.

Amazing Tea

My favourite of all of the Genuine Teas I have tried. Great for an afternoon or evening tea with its lower canine content.

One of the best green teas I've had

The Organic Hojicha was such a smooth green tea -- it's completely changed the way I think about green tea. And Genuine Tea's service has been incredible. I appreciate how easy it is to order, how quickly orders arrive. The Lavender Sencha will always be my favourite of your teas, but the Hojicha is now a close second.
