Onoborisan - Hoji cha, Origin: Kyoto

from 6.50

Name: Onoborisan

Variety: Hojicha, Kyoto 

origin: Kyoto

Tea maker: Uogashi Meicha

Harvest: 2015

Very aromatic, but soft and sweet roast, low in caffeine. Beautiful leaves and water colour.  Hoji cha is not usually curly and soft looking like this, but twig-like and straight having roasted tea stems from the harvested tea plant tips.  This hojicha contains much more leafy parts, yet is nicely and evenly roasted.  When you open the package, its incredible aroma jumps out to lure you.  Very impressive hojicha.
brew at : 95C for 15sec
