From the cut ends of the harvested tea leaves, there are stems that have a flowery aroma. These tea stems are selected and made into hojicha. The lovely fragrance is reminiscent of the world of the Tale of Genji, as if you were passing by a cluster of wild flowers.

Brewing Guidelines

This is how we brew this tea at Tearoom Toka. We offer these guidelines as a reference. Variations in water (hard or soft), leaf and water quantity, water temperature, and steeping time will effect the final flavor. Feel free to experiment and find the brew that best suits your taste.

 

Leaves: 3g
Water: 150ml
Temperature: starting from 90°C
Time: 120sec

 

Add the tea leaves to a pre-warmed teapot. Poor the boiled water and let steep before decanting into tea cups. In order to enjoy the fragrant aromatics of roasted tea, it is best to brew quickly in boiling water. Expertly roasted tea is delicious whether brewed light or strong. Please adjust the amount of tea leaves to your liking.
