Kiroku Tea Garden: Hojicha (roasted green tea)
Hojiru is the Japanese verb meaning “to roast.” For our hojicha, we take our sencha leaves and gently roast them to bring out a delicate, smoky aroma and a beautiful, red-brown tone. The roasting process removes much of the caffeine that is found in our sencha, so it is a great low caffeine tea option that can be enjoyed hot or iced.
About the tea farm: "Our 4th generation Kirokuen Tea Farm is in the heart of Wazuka, an area whose mountain tea fields and undulating terraced slopes thick with fog make perfect tea-growing conditions. Founded nearly 100 years ago, before cars and farming machinery were available, our mountain fields were cleared by hand by my Great-Grandfather, Kirokuen’s Founder.
Today, we’re in the unusual position of being entirely owned by women. After the death of my father, my mother, myself and my sister took over the running of the farm to continue our family’s legacy, one that began in these fields all those years ago."
