Roasted green tea from Japan, Kagoshima

Lightly roasted green tea - Kukicha. It has a bright, slightly roasted taste and aroma. Suitable for drinking after meals. The big characteristic of Hojicha is that it contains less caffeine. Green tea contains health-beneficial substances like tannin, caffeine, and vitamins (A, B2, C, E, K...). By roasting, caffeine evaporates but tannins, the substances known to have an anti-cancer effect, are left in Hojicha. Thus we say you can have more gulps of Hojicha than normal green tea, and also kids and older people can drink it.

How to prepare Hojicha tea

Use 5 grams of tea leaves for 0.5 liter of boiling water cooled to 75–80 ᵒC, and steep for 60 seconds. Feel free to experiment with steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves. You can also read our articles on tea preparation and water quality.
