Paloma Tea Company
Hojicha is a Japanese specialty. It is made in the same way as Sencha that it's steamed, dried, formed, but then roasted. The taste becomes ripe, soft and slightly sweet. Roasting removes much of the caffeine, it is common in Japan to drink it in the evening.
The raw material is taken at the pruning of the bushes after the first harvest. Because it is lightly roasted it becomes soft and delicate with a long aftertaste.
