Product specificity 商品説明

Kukicha (a Japanese tea made of stems, stalks, and twigs) taste features low bitterness and astringency. The fresh scent complements the refined sweetness of this tea.

Roasted over charcoal on ancient craft-based artisan know-how

Coal roasted teas are sweeter and tastier than usual. The coal roasting method helps suppress caffeine and tannins. It results in a tea less astringent and bitter than Sencha.

Craftsmen consider the amount of smoke of the coal fire, the changes in the color of the tea leaves and the weather and humidity of the day to enhance this tea characteristics.

About the taste 味について

Charcoal Roasted Hojicha “Moegi” is popular for soothing the stomach. It can be enjoyed by all – children, pregnant women, elderly, – at any time of the day and without limits.

Wonderful afternoon tea

This tea is very smooth with complex toasty notes and no bitterness. It is mild enough for afternoon or evening use even for caffeine sensitive people. Served traditionally (clear and unsweetened) it is light with delightful layers of flavor. It also takes milk and sugar nicely. This is one of my new favorites, especially nice for days when I want tea later in the day!

Hi Sascha, thank you so much for your review.
We are delighted that you can enjoy hojicha throughout the day!
As you said, hojicha is low in caffeine so it doesn't disturb sleep.
I wish you a wonderful day!
