  • Description

Our Autumn Leaves Hojicha is a roasted green tea from Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan.  Hojicha is a green tea that has been roasted for some time.  This turns the leaves into a beautiful caramel/autumn leaf color and produces a distinct flavor.  A lot of the caffeine is naturally removed when the tea is roasted, which makes this tea a popular evening/night time tea.  

Autumn Leaves Hojicha was roasted long enough to develop some nice flavor but not long enough for the roasted flavors to overpower the tea.  The aroma is a familiar coffee house roast smell.  The tea has a toasty taste with chocolate, caramel, and some nutty notes.

Each packet contains 100 grams of tea.

To brew:

  • Use around 4-6 grams per 200 mL (7 oz)
  • Use water that is just below boiling around 90˚C (195˚F)
  • 60 seconds per steep
  • Steep up to 3 times (or more)

These brewing instructions are just guidelines.  If you like your tea stronger; feel free to add more leaves, brew with hotter water, or steep for a longer time.  Same goes if you like your tea lighter.  I generally like to increase steeping times slightly after each steep.  Everyone's taste, teaware, and water is different so use these guidelines to find what works best for you! :)
