This roasting method emerged early in the 20th century in Kyoto, when tea merchants started roasting leaves over charcoal.
The roasting process has a decaffeinating effect on the leaves, making Hojicha a low-caffeine alternative for tea enthusiasts or as a coffee replacement.
The roasting process also changes the flavour of the tea. With a nutty taste, Hojicha is a unique tea in that it has a “roast” flavour that no other tea has.Interestingly enough, this flavour makes Hojicha taste quite a bit like freshly roasted coffee.
Perfect to drink if you are very caffeine sensitive due to its low caffeine content
