Hojicha is bancha, green tea with a light tangy or citrus flavor, that has been pan-roasted after preparation. This creates complex caramelized flavors and a warm robust aroma that is something like a red tea, but with the characteristic smoothness and drinkability of a light green tea. A truly enjoyable everyday drink that can be enjoyed morning or evening, and also makes an excellent iced tea. Highly recommended for red tea fans looking to explore green tea but still need some bold flavor.
Milk, sugar strongly discouraged.
