A slow-roasted green tea with minimal caffeine and a sweet, earthy taste that’s perfect for any time of day.
Despite its auburn complexion, Hojicha is indeed a member of the green tea family. Its unique hue is achieved by slowly and expertly dry-roasting fresh tea leaves. This process coaxes out new flavors and aromas like vanilla and barley and has the added benefit of greatly decreasing caffeine levels.
What to expect: A dry, hazel-colored tea that yields a dark amber cup with nutty aromas and a slightly sweet taste with nearly no bitterness or caffeine.
