Description

In general, Hôjicha or Houjicha refers to a green tea that has been roasted. It usually consists of later tea pickings and includes the flavourful tea twigs/stems as well. Since the roasting process also removes most of the caffeine, hojicha can be consumed by children, the elderly and those with caffeine sensitivities.

Our Organic Hojicha Raku 楽 is a light roast hojicha that has been ground into powder form. It is very practical for use in lattes and desserts. With Raku, there is no astringency or bitterness so it can also be enjoyed as a powdered tea drink.

The aroma and taste is truly spectacular – very melodic and playful, floating between the lighter floral fragrance of tea and the darker notes of coffee, hazelnuts and cacao. This is the hojicha that we use in our vegan hojicha gelato. It comes from a small family farm in the mountains of Yame, Japan.
