Description

Superior Miyazaki Hojicha is an excellent organic Japanese tea from Gokase Town in Miyazaki. It is made from a selection of ichibancha first flush stems and leaves, that are lightly roasted in the traditional pan-fired method in order to achieve a hojicha of exceptionally fine quality with outstanding aroma and the smoothest, sweet-toasted nectar!

The fine aromatics of this luxury hojicha come from a combination of both pan-firing and roasting the leaves. This combination produces an aroma that is quite different from steamed tea leaves that have been roasted into hojicha; and to us this produces a delightful cup that is also superior. Superior Miyazaki Hojicha is more refreshing, more stimulating, and a little flowery, without any excessive smokiness or roastedness.

On the palate this tea is a complete purist's delight, it is as smooth as you can imagine, and offers a bouquet of wonderful stimulating sweetly roasted flavors with a touch of green in the mix!

When I first opened a packet of this tea I was surprised by the pale colour. I've had many different types of roasted green tea and this one is by far the lightest in colour. However... the taste is better than any other Hojicha by a mile. This one is rich and nutty, and the colour of the tea is good too, golden even on the third brew. If you can get organic Hojicha as good as this why would you buy anything else?

Lovely roasted flavour with notes of honey and a subtle nuttiness, and hay. More than I expected out of this tea, its delicious, and beautifully low in caffiene which allows me to enjoy it further into the night than I usually drink tea.

A great choice for an afternoon or evening pot - low caffeine level combined with lovely sweet, nutty, maple syrup flavours. Makes a very good iced tea in summer, and again as the caffeine level is low you can slug it all afternoon with impunity.
