What is Hojicha?
Hojicha (which is the Japanese word for 'Roasted Green Tea') is Japanese green tea that is roasted over high heat after the steaming process that changes its flavor components and creating this wonderfully unique, roasted tea flavor that can't be found in other teas.
History of Hojicha
Hojicha originated in Kyoto during the 1920s, before the Hojicha was founded, tea farmers and merchants used to throw away their "leftover" trimmings such as stems, twigs, and broken tea leaves.
