About Hojicha Green Tea 

Houjicha is a Japanese green tea that is distinguished from others because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal while Japanese tea is usually steamed. The tea is fired at high temperature, altering the leaf colour tints from green to reddish-brown. The process was first performed in Kyoto, Japan in the 1920s and its popularity persists today.
Houjicha infusions have a light- to reddish-brown appearance, and are less astringent due to losing catechins during the high temperature roasting process. The roasted flavours are extracted and predominate this blend: the roasting replaces the vegetative tones of standard green tea with a toasty, slightly caramel-like flavour. The roasting process used to make Houjicha lowers the amount of caffeine in the tea. Because of its mildness, Houjicha is a popular tea to serve during the meal or after the evening meal before going to sleep and even preferred for children and elderly.
Houjicha is often made from bancha tea from the last harvest of the season, however our organic quality Hojicha is a mix of bancha and sencha, tea made from the twigs of the tea plant rather than the leaves. Our hojicha is roasted fresh as noted by it's outstanding aroma. This brews into a clean, amber liquor with a warm nutty aroma. It has deep earthy notes balanced by a sort of sweet aroma. It is a good choice for those who do not like the grassy, vegetable taste of other green teas. It's both soothing to drink this on cold winter days and refreshing to drink it iced.

The Tea Bridge

Chinese Tea Culture

Tea plays an important role in China. It is commonly consumed at social events, and many cultures have created intricate formal ceremonies for these events. Afternoon tea is a British custom with widespread appeal. Tea ceremonies, with their roots in the Chinese tea culture, differ among East Asian countries, such as the Japanese or Korean versions. Tea may differ widely in preparation, such as in Tibet, where the beverage is commonly brewed with salt and butter. Tea may be drunk in small private gatherings (tea parties) or in public (tea houses designed for social interaction).
