This dark loose leaf tea (also known as Houjicha) started life as a green loose leaf tea – but has been skilfully roasted to turn late pick Sencha into something extremely special.

Some of the catechins and caffeine are lost in this roasting, softening the tea in every way. The flavour is very soft and smooth, lacking astringency and tannin.

It still has caffeine, but it's lower than green tea making it a good tea for the evening, great with and after dinner. It has a soothing yet rather stimulating effect.

Wonderful surprise

Hojicha, was for me, a tea revelation! I expected a green tea but what I got was so much more. The roasting elevates a fine green tea to something nutty, smooth, and so satisfying. I highly recommend it !!!

Toasty and delicious

This is pretty cool. It's like warm and toasty, and a bit nutty like sesame seeds. I was given this as a gift and I'll definitely buy more.

Tasting Notes

Soft, toasty caramels with nutty, umami notes.


Use 2g per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 90°C (194°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

30p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.
