Large, flat leaves are roasted giving this tea its unique, rich nutty taste and earthy aroma.

Like many of the world’s great teas, Hojicha was discovered through a process of curiosity and innovation. During the 1920s, a tea master living in Kyoto Japan discovered the method for producing the tea using common materials he found around the house. Rather than steam a batch of freshly plucked leaf – the traditional method of Japanese style green tea production – the master decided he would roast it in a porcelain pot over burning charcoal. The result, as history would attest, was delicious.
