Hojicha OG+ 50g ほうじ茶

In Stock

Ujitawara, Kytoto, Japan

From the same growers and processing team that brought you our sencha, this hojicha makes the most of late season sencha by applying an additional drum roasting end stage. After the usual steaming and drying of a sencha process, the green tea is placed in a large rotating perforated drum over 200C+ charcoal heat for fast firing. The leaf changes to a light hazelnut brown, and the end result is a light, airy leaf full of sweet nutty aromas. Much of the caffeine is lost during the roasting, so this tea is also well suited to those after a more calming brew. The roasted profile also removes the sensitivity to water temperature and the tendency towards astringency most green teas are challenged with.

Dry leaves: long hazelnut, flat julienne cuts
Liquor: light golden colour, toasty, roasted hazelnut, caramel
Process: steamed, dried, then drum roasted on high heat
