What is Hojicha?
Hojicha is often made from the stems. It originated as a new type of tea that became widely popular in Japan because the stems left over from making other teas could be roasted to preserve them for a long time. As indicated by its brown appearance, Hojicha is tea that is roasted over high heat. Roasting at high temperature gives it a unique aroma and a refreshing taste.
