About Hojicha Variety

Hojicha is roasted Sencha or Bancha (coarse tea). Roasting reduces bitterness and creates a light and smooth taste with a toasted aroma. By varying the leaves used and the roasting temperature, the aroma and the taste can be adjusted to create more different varieties of Hojicha. After harvesting, the leaves are stored at room temperature for one to two years to enhance the flavor before they are made into Hojicha.
