Roasted over charcoal in porcelain pots. If you are not partial to vegetal taste which most green teas have, this roasty, flavorful tea is for you.
Rare, kuki-hojicha (kukicha) variety, made exclusively from green tea's delicate stems, prized for their high umami content and high notes of nutty sweetness.
Very low in caffeine. Good choice even as a soothing nightcap. You can also use it to make hojicha latte (how-to below).
JAS Certified Organic
Grown, harvested and processed by traditional farmers in lush-green highlands of Kyushu island, southern Japan.
How to Brew Hojicha
- Add one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup.
- Add near-boiling water to the teapot.
- Brew for 1-2 minutes and serve.
You can add hot water again to the teapot for a second, or even a third brewing.
How to Make Hojicha Latte
- Hojicha: One rounded tablespoon
- Milk (or soy milk): Two cups.
- Brown sugar or honey to taste.
- Heat milk to a simmer in a pot.
- Add the hojicha.
- Brew for 2-3 minutes on low heat.
- Strain and serve.
Hojicha’s roasty, nutty flavor comes off best when unsweetened. Try your hojicha latte without sweetening to appreciate its distinctive character.

WAWAZA generously sent me a sample of Hojicha tea with another purchase and I enjoyed it so much that I immediately placed an order for several of their herbal teas. The tea is impeccably fresh, clean, flavorful, and delicious. I love the scent of charcoal roasting so much that I take deep breaths out of the bag every time I make tea. :) Each cup of tea is an experience that brings so much enjoyment and tranquility. I always enjoyed drinking tea sweetened, but all WAWAZA teas I enjoy unsweetened too. I strongly recommend these teas to anyone. Also, packaging is thoughtful, simple but beautiful, without waste. Consideration, care, and attention to details are noticeable in everything WAWAZA does. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Shipping to US takes exactly the time estimated on the website and the package arrives in perfect condition every time. A grateful thank you for everything!
I like to make lattes with it. It has a roasted flavor to it that you can taste. To me it’s almost kinda sweet. The directions are clear and simple. And they are also posted on the website along with recipes. Will order more int the future.
Most enjoyable tea ever and also takes acidic waste products out of the body. The smell of this tea being brewed is one of the most pleasurable things in my life and drinking it is another one! My daily bliss.
This is so different than any green tea I ever tasted. I drink it every day since its so low in caffeine. Has a full body and rich roasted aroma. I have tried cheaper kinds from Amazon but no way they can even come close to the quality of this tea.
Nice deep, rich flavor. Ver smooth. I gave some to my sister and she went crazy for it. I told her to buy her own! Delivery was quick and customer service is really nice.
