How To Brew Hojicha
Use 1 level teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water until briskly steaming (not boiling). Steep for 3 minutes. For best taste, do not over steep. This high quality green tea can be infused twice and it will still maintain a wonderful flavor.
To prepare Hojicha, we recommend using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods give the tea leaves enough room to expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup.
Hojicha Caffeine Content
Hojicha is very low in caffeine.
Green tea boosts energy, enhances mood, and helps with focus.

Hojicha is low in caffeine, with a medium body and a warm, nutty flavor with a hint of natural sweetness. Because of its low caffeine content and mild taste, in Japan Hojicha is especially popular among children and the elderly.
