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 aromas of this hojicha come from a combination of pan-firing and complex roasting of the leaves. This combination produces aroma that is quite different from steamed tea leaves that have been roasted into hojicha, and to us, also superior. The aroma offered is more refreshing, more stimulating, 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!
