Hojicha Kawabataen 100g

Hojicha is a roasted Japanese green tea with some very unique notes to it. While most Japanese green teas have a little bit of this edamame and sweet corn flavors, Hojicha plays more off of these roasted chocolate and caramel flavors. During the roasting process, the tea also loses some of its caffeine so Hojicha can be drunk in the late afternoon or evening. Compared to the Noike Hojicha, this tea has more of a cereal flavor to it, with a bit of a smoky aftertaste. The tea starts to go into the direction of toasted rice with a hint of wet wood.

Kamairicha Issin 100g

While most Japanese green teas are steamed, this tea is actually turned in a hot pan, similar to a Chinese green tea. As a result, the flavor picks up a little bit of this roasted caramel or nuttiness. The tea is quite dense and creamy, making it a perfect tea for the wintertime. You get this slightly roasted flavor, but nowhere near as intense as a hojicha. If you normally prefer Chinese teas but want to venture into the exciting world of Japanese green tea, this is the best choice for you. If you are looking for something slightly different from the grassy sencha teas, this is also a good way to add a little variety to your tea collection.

Meet the Farmer

Mr. Kawabata

This tea comes from Mr. Kawabata in Shizuoka. Mr. Kawabata has been able to develop these nice warmer notes of the Hojicha by roasting the tea leaves. During the roasting process, these leaves lose their grassy and vegetable notes in exchange for notes of coffee, caramel or even chocolate.

Mr. Issin

Up in the mountains of Takachiho, Mr. Issin is hard at work crafting his famous Kamairicha, a rare pan-fired green tea with a beautifully nutty note. Last April, we got a chance to sit down and have lunch with his family in their 200-year-old house. He drove us around the village to see breathtaking mountain tea fields in the countryside. We learned all about Kamairicha production, from the special organic fertilizer he grows, all the way to the pan-firing method that gives this tea its trademark flavor.

About the Farm

This tea was grown in the mountains of Takachiho in Miyazaki prefecture. Although Kamairicha is a relatively rare tea, this region has become famous for it. The farm of Mr. Issin includes 4 small fields spread around the village, all of which are higher elevation. It was a great privilege to tour all of these fields and take in the picturesque views of this beautiful region. 

How to Brew it

Add 5 grams of leaves to the teapot or strainer and then pour in 150ml to 200ml of water (160 degrees Fahrenheit) and let the tea brew for 1 minute. You can brew the leaves 2-3 more times with the same temperature for 20 seconds each
