Hojicha, a Japanese specialty, contains roasted twigs from some of the best tea gardens in Uji. One of the joys of Japanese food stores is the smell of fresh roasted Hojicha. It is reminiscent of coffee, but sweeter, and has very reduced levels of caffeine.

Why We Love This Tea...
This roasted green tea has a unique almost coffee like palette to it. A great specialty choice aside from traditional tea!
