Description

Our Genmai-Hojicha is a lovely Japanese blend with toasted, dark caramel notes. We have blended fine roasted Japanese tea with the addition of toasted and popped Japanese rice. For a twist on classic Genmaicha. The unique high-temperature roasting process produces a deep reddish-brown colored leaf and a toasted, nutty, sweet and slightly burnt-sugar-like flavor.

Genmai-Hojicha has an aroma that is sweet, dark, rich, and toasted. Roasting the leaves creates a tea with a much lower caffeine content than Japanese green tea; and the addition of toasted rice highlights the savory notes of the Hojicha.

The roasted character of our Genmai-Hojicha has a savory-sweet flavor once steeped. You will appreciate the velvety smooth body and umami rich flavor profile with every sip. Its satisfying and full flavor makes this brew a wonderful and refreshing blend for anytime of the day.

A basic workhorse, this tea goes well with studying or laundry. It's not anything to write home about, but one might like to have it at home. Unpretentious (unlike my reviews) and gently toasted, this low caffeine Japanese staple is made ever so slightly more special by the addition of puffed rice. It's a solid savoury tea for any hour.
