Hojicha Karigane Green Tea

Description

Description

Hojicha Karigane tea is renowned in Japan for its healing qualities, as well as its taste. It is given to babies and people who are sick to provide them with nourishment and to help them feel relaxed due to its high levels of beneficial catechin, while being low in caffeine due to it being pan-roasted after it is harvested.

Our Hojicha karigane is produced from the stems of high grade tea leave, known as karigane, hence the name. Unlike regular Hojicha, our Hojicha Karigane has a deeply sweet and distinctly roasted flavour. This unique taste is another reason why it stands out from other Japanese green teas.

Another way in which Hojicha karigane is different to regular Hojicha tea is that it is roasted over an extremely low heat in an iron pot. This ensures the heat gets to the core of the tea stem without it being burnt, but rather roasted. As it’s just the stems that are roasted, our Hojicha karigane tea is able to retain its flavour and strong aroma.

While it doesn’t share the same bright emerald colour of other Japanese green teas, the cloudy water colour Hojicha karigane reflects its soothing qualities. A cup of Hojicha Karigane tea will both help you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. You’ll also discover why it’s been used as a naturally grown form of Oriental mood medicine for centuries.

    Lovely taste, beautiful tea.I drink it every day. The best tip is don’t leave the teabag in too long! Then it goes bitter. Just one minute and its wonderful.

  3. Elvis

    Very nice tea. This is the first time i have tried green tea and i was quite suprised how nice it tastes. I was expecting no taste or a bitter taste. Pleasantly suprised. It will probably take a few years to drink all the tea bags i bought six boxes at a very good price.
