"This Hojicha has a sweet, nutty aroma and blends beautifully to make a warming latte - I've even found whisking it with cold milk is delicious too! I highly recommend it!" (Mary)

This 70 Grams of Hojicha Roasted Green Tea Powder: 

  • Is medium roasted and has a pleasant warm and nutty aroma.

  • Is from a 2021 Second harvest originated in Fukuoka prefecture, Japan

  • Comes in Eco-friendly Home Compostable Packaging 
  • It’s perfect to drink on its own, with milk or for cooking purposes.

ABOUT HOJICHA: 

  • Is Roasted Green Tea and this makes it different to other Japanese Green Tea which are mostly steamed.
  • 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.

    I never heard of Houjicha until I received a sample from Erin. It didn't take me long afterwards to order it. It's great.

    NUTTY ROASTED HOUJICHA!

    So excited when I got the parcel from Matcha Yu! Especially love the Houjicha with its nutty, roasted aroma and smooth consistency. I use the Matcha with an avocado smoothie every morning. It feels great to know that the packaging is compostable and the quality is definitely top notch!
