Ingredient: organic Hojicha (roasted green tea) powder from Japan
Hojicha is pronounced ‘ho-jee-cha’. ‘Ho-jee’ means “roasted” and ‘cha’ means “tea” in Japanese. Hojicha, roasted green tea, is one of the traditional green teas in Japan. The roasting process adds cozy roasted aroma and decreases the amount of Caffeine in green tea. This aromatic tea is popular to accompany with meals and snacks in Japan, and also served at Japanese food restaurants.
Our “HOJICHA afternoon green tea for modern warriors” is a very unique product. 100% organic hojicha leaf is ground into a fine powder form in the same way as Matcha is made. Contrary to the jade green Matcha, the color of HOJICHA powder is a rich brown. Like Matcha, HOJICHA powder offers you more aroma and a richer flavor than Hojicha loose leaf. How to make this is simple and quick in the same way as Matcha. You can even use a whisk and froth it like Matcha. We named HOJICHA ‘afternoon green tea for modern warriors’ because of its lower level of caffeine compared to Matcha.
Which one is for you, loose leaf or powder? If you like a clear, fresh note, Hojicha loose leaf is for you. If you like a savory, richer flavor, you will enjoy Hojicha powder. Hojicha powder is also great to use when making a latte or frappe. Also great in baked goods.
