Hojicha is made by roasting sencha green tea, which lowers caffeine content and adds a toasty roasted flavor. This Hojicha is a little on the lighter side in terms of flavor, making it perfect for pairing with both sweet and savory foods.
Bring 5oz of water to 100ºC (212ºF) and steep the tea bag for 60 seconds or to taste.
