Known for it’s light-bodied flavor and dark amber hue, Hojicha has a soothing, almost sweet taste. This roasted green tea is a variety of Bancha, a course-leaf group of teas that are made from leaves that have grown too large for use as Sencha. Hojicha is very low in caffeine, making it the perfect compliment to an evening meal or dessert. In Japan, Bancha teas are a casual, everyday beverage.
Located in the heart of Kyoto, Ippodo Tea Co. has been cultivating the highest quality of Japanese green tea for nearly 300 years. The tea is harvested in the lush Uji region of Japan, the country’s oldest tea-growing area.
