The nice aspect about hojicha is that you do not have to pay careful attention to the temperature of the boiling water, which allows anyone to enjoy it easily. As long as you steep it with boiling water, you will end up with a tasty cup of hojicha. Additionally, when you open the tea bag, when you go to steep the tea, when you go to drink your hojicha or afterwards, you feel an instant sense of relief and comfort. This may be due to the roasty and comforting aroma from the hojicha which contains the fragrant ingredient with the relaxing effect of "pyrazine (produced when adding heat to tea leaves). Hojicha contains this pyrazine abundantly.
