The tea is harvested in winter when there are no sprouts, so it contains almost no caffeine and has a gentle flavour that warms the body..
The harvest is timed to coincide with the full moon. The full moon is the day when the water content in the bodies of all living organisms on earth is at its lowest, and all plants produced on this day are believed to reach their peak in terms of both taste and aroma.
This Hojicha is sourced directly from Japan, our Hojicha is organically grown with love and stone ground for superior taste and health benefits.
This fragrant and refreshing Japanese green tea is made by roasting Sencha(煎茶） and Bancha（番茶) over a high flame. It is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed. The roasting process diminishes the tannin and caffeine content of the leaves to suppress astringency and bitterness and draw out fragrance. Hojicha is a warm reddish-brown colour. Having a refreshing roasted aroma and being low in caffeine makes it a good after meal tea. It has an earthy and a slightly smoky sweet taste.
Our organic Genmaicha is a richly-flavoured Japanese green tea made by mixing roasted rice with Sencha(煎茶) and Bancha(番茶). Before being blended with the tea, the rice is steeped in water and steamed then, roasted at a high temperature, and the popped rice stands out amongst the tea leaves.
Genmaicha allows you to enjoy the nutty flavour and the special savoury fragrance of the roasted rice together with the refreshing taste of Sencha or Bancha. It has a light yellow water colour and is mild to drink. The taste is nutty and has a subtle aroma of roasted rice. Roasted rice helps to bring out the sweetness in taste while reducing the amount of Sencha and Bancha used.
