Hojicha Green Tea

$ 4.99




  • Green tea from Japan that is rendered brown by roasting Bancha (a summer crop tea, harvested after Sencha) tea leaves. A You Me And Tea customer favorite, with a toasty nutty flavor and slightly mesquite note. Earthy and warm quality, soothing, clean finish.
  • Hojicha Green Tea 

    Cup Characteristics:  Roasted green tea with full-bodied character and cinnamon-like toast notes

    Infusions: Pale green yellow.

    Ingredients:  Luxury roasted green tea

    The tea is produced using a 3rd flush Bancha leaf known in Japanese as Sanbancha. The plucked leaves are produced in a style similar to that of Sencha - the leaves are steamed and dried. Next the dried leaf is roasted over a low heat - the low roasting temperature imparts a sweet taste and nice fresh aroma..
  • Hot Tea Method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to less than boil(180-183 degrees). Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 2-4 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
    Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly less than boiled(180-183 degrees) water over the tea. Steep for 2-4 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
