Perhaps you are familiar with a hojicha but exactly is a kuki hojicha? A kukicha (“twig tea”), or stem tea, is made with parts of the tea plant that is usually not used for making the most common type of green tea such as sencha. So, this tea from Yokota Tea Garden is a roasted stem tea, and specifically with stems/stalks coming from their summer harvest in Sayama, Saitama prefecture. Lightly smoky and earthy in flavor, and low in caffeine due to the summer harvest and roasting process. Many of our customers have also commented on the gentle sweetness and nuttiness of this kuki hojicha so if you prefer your hojichas to have a subtle sweetness, this one may be for you!
