I have been a fan of Hojicha since I was a little girl. Maybe it’s because Hojicha was the first green tea my mom gave me. Hojicha is roasted green tea and known for its very low caffeine. In Japan pediatricians recommend Hojicha for babies. Surprised?
Golden brown color, nice toasty flavor, calming aroma… ahhhh never get tired of Hojicha. What’s interesting about this green tea is that it tastes delicious with cream and sugar. Just like black tea, it can be enjoyed as “Milk Tea”. My kids LOVE Hojicha milk tea. I use loose leaf and brew it VERY thick and add a hint of cream and sugar.
Majority brands of Hojicha is made of tea leaves. SA Hojicha is made of mainly young twigs. Twigs have more sweetness than tea leaves. Tea Maestro Sugimoto’s well-honed roasting technique beautifully crafts Hojicha.
