A nostalgic favorite, hojicha can be enjoyed hot or cold with any meal, or simply as a relaxing tea to warm the heart. Skilled tea artisans roast carefully selected leaves over a charcoal fire to make this hojicha of refined flavor and aroma. Nippon Cha hojicha uses tea leaves from the first harvest of the season. This is rare for hojicha as it is a tea traditionally made by roasting left over leaves for a long time. Nippon Cha combines a higher grade leaf and skilled roasting techniques to create a hojicha that stands out in flavor while bringing back all the memories of home.
