HoJi Cha
Hojicha is unique among Japanese green teas. The leaves are harvested late in the season. After they are picked, they are immediately steamed, dried, then roasted, which accounts for the dark leaves and amber-colored infusion. Hojicha has a rich taste and an unforgettable aroma. It is often served in Japanese restaurants as it is a great compliment to most foods. It is also a preferred drink for those seeking a hot beverage with a low caffeine content.
