Hojicha | Green Tea
This is a wonderful toasted green tea made of leaves and stems. The cup has a natural, nutty sweetness, more body than any other green tea, and is naturally low in caffeine.
This tea was produced by a family owned tea company that was founded in 1869 in Shizuoka, Japan. It’s owned and run by the same family for five generations now. We've worked with these folks for six years. Their teas, their skill, and their warmth continue to astound me. Their tea factory is located near the Nissaka area of Shizouka, not far from Mt. Fuji.
