This dark tea (also known as Houjicha) 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.

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.
