TEKUNO Hōjicha Tea 2020
This hōjicha brews a thick, pleasant cup of everyday tea. Selected from yabukita tea leaf stems, the producer of this tea specializes in unique processing styles not often found in Japan, including black teas, white teas, and even puers. It makes a wonderful hojicha latte.
Hōjicha is roasted green tea—after processing the tea plant into green tea, makers will roast the tea at high temperatures to bring out a rich, savory fragrance. The roasting process reduces the amount of caffeine and tannins, making it suitable for drinking in the evening.
