Hojicha Hanamitsu has a reddish nectar liquor and a toasty aroma reminiscent of a summer bonfire. The warm sunset color of the roasted sencha tea is perfectly complemented by its nutty and smoky taste.
The single-origin roasted green tea is made from sencha tea leaves grown in Kyoto, Japan. After being picked during the second harvest in June, the tea leaves are lightly steamed to prevent oxidation. Then each leaf is rolled and dried to produce sencha. Finally, Hojicha Hanamitsu is created by roasting the sencha at a high heat.
The full-bodied Hojicha Hanamitsu can be sipped on hot or enjoyed as a thirst-quenching cold brew during the day. Since Hojicha Hanamitsu is a naturally low in caffeine, it is also an ideal after dinner tea.
Prepare Hojicha Hanamitsu by steeping 8 grams in 250 ml of 80°C water for 30 seconds. Let cool slightly to experience the robust flavor.
