Bo Hojicha


Hojicha is roasted Sencha or Bancha. Roasting reduces bitterness and creates a light, smooth taste, and a toasted aroma. Unlike most Hojicha, which is made with coarse leaves or stems, Bo Hojicha is made using stems that were sorted from the youngest leaves plucked during the first flush harvest. To preserve the rich flavor of the first flush tea, stems are roasted ever so lightly. Bo Hojicha is from the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka prefecture.

About Sencha Variety

Sencha, the most commonly drunk green tea in Japan was first produced in Uji (the outskirts of Kyoto) in the 18th Century and is now produced in many parts of the country. First flush tea, harvested from late April through mid-May, is considered the best of its kind. Sencha has the perfect balance of briskness and sweetness.
