Hojicha Dark Roast is a Japanese roasted green tea with a sweet aroma and a deeply toasted flavor that delights with each sip.
Before being harvested in June, the tea leaves used for Hojicha Dark Roast are grown in full sun. The whole leaves are then carefully steamed, rolled, dried, and roasted to create this rounded and full-bodied tea. The roasting process removes any bitterness and most of the caffeine, making Hojicha Dark Roast the perfect drink for late afternoons and evenings.
As a roasted green tea, Hojicha Dark Roast is reddish brown in color and has a soothing earthy aroma. This crowd-pleasing green tea delights tea and coffee drinkers alike with its bold taste, featuring both the smokiness of the coarse leaves as well as the sweetness of the stems. As a single-origin tea, Hojicha Dark Roast has distinct flavor characteristics unique to its field. This roasted green tea is best enjoyed hot, and makes for the perfect latte.
Prepare Hojicha Dark Roast by steeping 8 grams in 240 ml of 80°C (175°F) water for 30-60 seconds. Let cool slightly to experience the round and naturally sweet flavor.
