Japanese Hojicha Roasted Green Tea

Regular price £5.99
-12 in stock

This dark tea started life as a green 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.
