Kuki Hojicha｜日式焙茶 (by Plantation)
A traditionally roasted Japanese green tea made mostly of leaf stems
This Kuki Hojicha is distinctive because it is made by a traditional sand roasting method, where the tea is mixed in with hot sand and slow roasted.
Kuki Hojicha has less caffeine than other green teas is partly because it mostly consists of stems (tea buds and young shoots tend to carry the most caffeine) and partly because it is roasted over a high heat, which reduces the caffeine content significantly.
