Japan in your teapot with organic Hojicha tea
Hojicha tea belongs to the green tea family and originates from Japan. Its preparation begins with the late harvest of tea leaves, around the month of October. The mature leaves obtained form the bancha. The bancha is then roasted, like coffee beans, to produce this organic Hojicha. Organic Hojicha leaf infusions develop a roasted and toasted taste, reminiscent of coffee. There are also notes of caramel and vanilla. The infusion has a tan color, which can tend to black. In Japan, the tasting of this product is widespread. With its notes of coffee beans, it is consumed to accompany fish dishes, especially sushi.
Benefits and virtues of Hojicha tea
Organic Hojicha tea is unique and different from other Japanese green teas. When roasted, bancha loses large amounts of catechins, which reduces the astringency of Hojicha. It is also low in theine, so it can be enjoyed in the evening. This black beverage is ideal for weak stomachs, those who can't stand coffee or strong tannin teas. Indeed, the particular preparation of Hojicha tea makes it a mild product, which can be consumed by everyone, even by children. Japanese organic Hojicha tea loses its virtues when roasted. However, it allows a good digestion when drunk after a meal.
