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.
