Green tea by Teasome. Hojicha is a Japanese green tea that is produced in an unusual manner - it contains not only tea leaves, but primarily of chopped up roasted stems. The result is a tea with an original flavour that is reminiscent of freshly baked brown bread.

The majority of hojicha on the western market is finely cut and strongly roasted. We, on the other hand, wanted to present you with something unique - a hojicha with long, lovely stems, subjected to a lighter sand roasting. This method goes back to the Edo period (17th - 19th centuries).

The stems come from a spring harvest (sencha), whereas the leaves were from a second harvest (bancha). You can still see a distinct green reflection in them both. This tea has actually preserved a noticeable fresh green tea aftertaste, but the bready, woody, even mineral notes clearly dominate. Hojicha is often drunk after meals and also in the evenings as it contains a lot less caffeine than leafy teas.
