Why we want to share this tea with you
This Hojicha is very unique as it is a roasted green tea from the Japanese tea cultivar, grown and roasted by expert tea makers here in Australia.
The roasting process this tea undergoes, imparts deep toasty flavours similar to high roasted or baked Oolongs and makes an amber liquid. The leaves are a deep green/brown colour & have a flaky appearance.
Less astringent & lower in caffeine than most green teas, this tea produces a smooth, caramel and toasty flavour which has notes of hazelnut and a dry finish.
