Hojicha tea is a unique blend of herbal tea by-products. Hojicha tea contains less caffeine than most other green tea for two key reasons. First, roasting improves the chemical components of the tea and theoretically reduces the amount of caffeine. Second, the most popular source of Hojicha tea is rendered with more mature tea leaves plucked mid-season. The leaves contain less caffeine than the first or second wave of young tea leaves.
This roasted herbal tea is a vibrant, bold drink with a sweet, pungent fragrance. Intense aromas of toasted coffee bean and brown sugar, vanilla and caramel flavours explode into the scene, leaving the mouth with a creamy, mellow and light body feel.
