Hojicha Organic Japanese Green Tea / Sushi Pantry
Haiku Hojicha Organic Japanese Green Tea
Hojicha is a green tea containing many of the same nutritional benefits of matcha, however, unlike traditional green teas, hojicha is roasted after the leaves are steamed to remove all bitterness. The roasting process gives hojicha its signature earthy aroma. It has a reddish-brown color and a unique smoky taste. Hojicha is very low in caffeine making it the perfect alternative to coffee for a warm and toasty drink in the afternoon or evening.
Hojicha also contains antimicrobial catechins that help kill bacteria, as well as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E which are essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.
