Hojicha Gold Roast is a Japanese roasted green tea with a satisfying umami flavor and exquisite golden color worthy of sophisticated palates. This luxurious tea is not your ordinary hojicha, with its delicate vegetal notes and caramel sweetness. The complex flavor profile is unique to the single-origin Hojicha Gold Roast, and is as enchanting as its pleasant smoked wood aroma.
Also known as The Champagne of Hojicha, the smooth Hojicha Gold Roast is made from lightly roasted sencha grown in Kyoto, Japan. After being harvested early in the spring, the whole leaves are lightly steamed, rolled, dried, and roasted to create the well-rounded high grade roasted green tea. Hojicha Gold Roast tastes best warm or as a cold brew, and can be sipped on anytime as it is low in caffeine.
Prepare Hojicha Gold Roast by steeping 8 grams in 250 ml of 90°C (194°F) water for 30 seconds. Let cool slightly to best experience its subtle sweetness.
