Otsuka Japanese Shizuoka Hojicha Green Tea Bags 2g x 20 Units
オーツカ 国産静岡ほうじ茶 ティーバッグ 2g×20個
The tea bags contain high-quality, Japanese-grown green tea leaves specifically chosen for making hojicha. The leaves used for hojicha are typically harvested from the late summer or early autumn harvest and then undergo a roasting process. Made with tea leaves sourced from the Shizuoka region in Japan!
Hojicha has a unique flavour profile characterized by its toasty, nutty, and slightly smoky taste. The roasting process gives the tea a warm and earthy aroma with a mellow and smooth flavour. Hojicha has lower levels of caffeine compared to other green teas, making it a popular choice for those seeking a more relaxing and soothing tea experience.
To prepare a cup of hojicha tea, you can follow these general brewing instructions. Begin by boiling water and allowing it to cool slightly. Place one tea bag in a cup or teapot, and pour the hot water over it. Let the tea steep for about 1-2 minutes, adjusting the steeping time based on your preference for strength. Remove the tea bag and savour the delicious, roasted flavour of hojicha!
