Hojicha Powder is a popular and delicious Japanese staple tea ingredient, ideal for blended drinks and desserts.
We now offer Hojicha powder in 3 different levels of roasting:
Please choose according to taste.
Medium Roast is our most popular blend, with a well-rounded roasted flavour profile, balanced by a nutty aftertaste that recalls notes of milk chocolate.
Light Roastis our most delicate and aromatic blend, made by lightly roasting green tea stems. This blend has an incredibly inviting aroma that reminds us of roasted hazelnuts. It features a mild roasted fragrance with light floral notes and a lingering nutty aftertaste.
Dark Roast is our strongest and boldest Hojicha. In this blend, the strong level of roast has transformed all the more subtle and fresh notes of green tea into dark chocolate and coffee-like flavours.
All of these blends are best enjoyed when blended with milk into Hojicha Latte or mixed into cakes and fillings for delicious desserts. Not recommended as a tea.
Origin: Uji, Kyoto (Japan)

Packaging: Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, almost opaque glass that naturally filters the spectrum of visible sunlight, only allowing through Infra-Red and UVA light, or ‘violet’ light. Because of its natural ability to block light, Biophotonic glass protects precious contents from perishing in sunlight, increasing their shelf life and effectiveness.
