From the hills of Shizuoka, this organic Hojicha roasted green tea is incredibly fragrant with a soothing, earthy aroma and a light-bodied, toasty flavor. Hojicha is lower in caffeine, making it the perfect choice for a relaxing evening tea or a soothing after-dinner delight.

Hojicha also spelled Houjicha, is a popular green tea that’s excellent for digestion. In Japan, hojicha is especially favored by children and the elderly for its low caffeine content - a tea suitable for any time and anyone. Hojicha gets its low caffeine content and reddish-brown color from the high heat roasting process.

ほうじ茶の淹れ方

HOW TO BREW Hojicha

1 | Heat fresh, filtered water until boiled. Let cool very slightly — water close to 203°F (95°C) is ideal for bringing out the fragrance and flavor in Hojicha.

2 | Pour water over 1 tablespoon of tea leaves per cup.

3 | Steep for 1-2 minutes. All of our teas can be steeped up to 3 times.

FOR ICED HOJICHA:
Simply add the desired amount of Hojicha tea leaves into a container or bottle and pour in boiling water. Let the tea steep and cool down before putting it in the fridge to chill. After 2 hours, the cold brew Hojicha is ready. Cold-brew tea lasts in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.

For a more mellow flavor, add water to your desired amount of Hojicha tea leaves and let steep in the fridge for 3 hours before drinking.

ほうじ茶タピオカミルクティー

Hojicha Bubble Milk tea

1 | In a small saucepan, boil the tapioca for 5 minutes or as per the directions.

2 | When ready, drain the water from the tapioca. Then stir in honey on the tapioca over low heat for a minute and set aside. Be sure to stir frequently to avoid burning.

3 | In another saucepan, pour the milk over the Hojicha loose tea. Stir gently and heat on the stove.

4 | Once the milk and tea start to boil, remove from fire and set aside.

5 | Combine the ingredients by scooping the tapioca and honey syrup into a cup and pour the Hojicha milk tea through a strainer to remove any loose leaves in the drink.

6 | Stir together and enjoy!
