I make a wonderful hojicha latte with this. Wonderful flavor. My husband requests it after dinner. I feel okay with him having one late since it’s lower caffeine than most caffeinated teas. ~Jen, November 2018
Ingredient: Organic Hojicha (roasted green tea) powder from Japan
Hojicha is pronounced ‘ho-jee-cha’. ‘Ho-jee’ means “roasted” and ‘cha’ means “tea” in Japanese. Hojicha, roasted green tea, is one of the traditional green teas in Japan. This aromatic tea, which has shown to increase alpha waves in the brain, is popular to accompany meals and snacks in Japan and is also served at Japanese food restaurants.
HOJICHA is known as “low caffeine green tea” as the roasting process decreases the caffeine level in the tea leaf.
Our HOJICHA uses organic tea leaf. The organic tea leaf was roasted just for us, and then was ground finely in the same way as MATCHA.
This finely ground hojicha can be used in the same way as matcha. Just add the powder to water, hot or cold, to make a delightful cup with a rich body. Or, whip it like MATCHA and make it frothy–enjoy the heavenly creaminess with green tea benefits. It’s also delicious to mix with milk. It makes a delicious hojicha frappe, hojicha ice cream, hojicha chocolate, etc. Sit back and enjoy this hearty, delectable treat!
Preparation: Mix 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. powder with 6 to 8 oz water of 180-195° F, and stir well. Use milk and sweetener of your choice, if you wish.
Net Weight: 30g/1.1 oz (Makes 15 cups)
Storage: Avoid exposure to sunlight, moisture, heat, and air. When you close pouch, gently squeeze out excess air to minimize the air left in pouch.
Bought this to try because I was spending too much money at all the boba shops nearby. Love Hojicha lattes – made one myself with some silk protein milk alternative and it was delicious. I can now adjust how strong I want the hojicha flavor too. Small package but still worth it and tastes great! ~Livia, January 2019

It is very good for making sweets and drinking also. ~Amazon Customer, June 2018
Very nice tea! I just really like this tea. It is comforting to know that the tea is all that I am getting with this product. No sweeteners! It is difficult to find beverage products that have no sweeteners. ~Robert, December 2017
