- Tea Brewing 101
Our Hojicha "Kyo" is a Traditional Hojicha, with a sweet flavor and smoky aroma with none of the bitterness and caffeine usually associated with tea.
Our Hojicha Basic and Dark Roast has the same origins as the first Hojicha that came from the region of Kyoto during the 1920s, making it the 100th Anniversary (or close!) of Hojicha!

Hot brew teas are recommended as a warm accompaniment for a meal, or as a morning, afternoon, or even evening beverage as our teas contain a much lower amount of caffeine as compared to Coffee or even Matcha.
For convenience, Cold Brew teas are recommended as it can be made well in advance and it also draws out the natural sweetness of the teas without the bitterness normally associated with teas.
