Begin your journey into roasted tea with the Roasted Tea 3-Pack. This gives you the opportunity to compare two very different roasted teas, and see which flavors you like best. Do you prefer the creamy, coffee flavors of the Kuki Hojicha, the buttery cashew nuts of the Kamairicha, or more of the roasted cereal notes of the Kawabaten?

Issin Kamairicha 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.

Steeping: 165 degrees Fahrenheit 74 degrees Celsius for 1-1.5 minutes

Kuki Hojicha 100g

This is our darkest Hojicha, bringing a powerful roasted flavor to the palate. Compared to the Kawabataen and the Noike Hojicha, this tea has more of a coffee flavor and a heavier mouthfeel. Because it contains only stems, it is also the lowest in caffeine. The flavor begins with a strong, coffee-flavored kick, followed by a lingering wooden note. The tea has a nice creaminess to it that balances out some of the stronger roasted notes. 

Steeping: 165 degrees Fahrenheit 74 degrees Celsius for 1-1.5 minutes

Hojicha Kawabataen 100g

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.

Steeping: 165 degrees Fahrenheit 74 degrees Celsius for 1-1.5 minutes

Can be brewed up to 4-5 times for 20 seconds each

Contains three 100 grams packs of loose leaf tea
