Tea and toast, that most beloved of pairings, combine here in this hearty low-caffeine brew for any time of day or night. An exception to Japan’s usual steam-processing creed, hojicha is toasted to yield robust aromas of nuts and malt, underscored with waves of fresh green.

Ingredients

Organic green tea (roasted)


Japanese green tea* (roasted) (*certified organic)

Preparation
Quantity Temperature Time
2 tsp / 250 ml 90.0° C 1 infusion 2 min.
2 infusion 2 min.

Background Knowledge

Japanese tea processing etiquette is usually quite strict when it comes to not treating the leaves too extensively. However, in order to produce their beloved hojicha tea, they make an exception that seems astonishing by Japanese standards: Once the leaves and stems have been steamed and rolled, they additionally get roasted (either in a porcelain pot or over charcoal). Such undogmatic processing results in a brownish liquor that has delicate notes of both nuts and malt. Furthermore, since the above-mentioned treatment makes the leaves less sensitive to heat, you can easily brew hojicha at unusually high temperatures. What’s more: hojicha is low in caffeine, goes well with almost any meal, and even makes a hearty iced tea!
