New Season HOJICHA Roasted Green Tea (50 g)


Easy on the caffeine, loaded with flavour, and enjoyable almost any time of day

Product Description

Did you know that most Japanese green teas are steamed? Well, New Season Hojicha is in a class of its own. It’s a charcoal-roasted green tea. 

Taste-wise, it’s different too of course. This tea is processed at a high temperature to create a toasty aroma and a sweet toffee-like finish. 

Fans of Uji Genmaicha, with its roasted rice and matcha mix, will probably also enjoy our New Season Hojicha Roasted Green Tea. Both are perfect for brewing large pots of tea. So why not order them together?

Brewing & Enjoying New Season Hojicha Roasted Green Tea

Serving suggestion for six: first, pour 500 ml of boiling water onto 10 g of this tea for around 20 seconds. That’s it for the first brew. The result is a beautiful honey-like sweetness and amber colour with a foamy top.

But it doesn’t end there. Hojicha Roasted Green Tea is a generous tea that offers great flavour over multiple infusions. You can actually brew it at least 3 times.

Finest Sencha

This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried


MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!

Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.

The Bordeaux of teas

This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.

The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description

Naturally malty and creamy black tea

As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.

A really unique Japanese green tea blend

As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.

Bag Size

50 grams

Brewing Guide (6-8 Cups)

10 g, 500 ml, 100⁰, 20 sec., 3 infusions

How Economical is it?

Very! In a large teapot, steeping 10 g yields 6 cups of delicious Hojicha.

Let’s say you do 3 steeps of 6 cups each. That’s 18 cups in all.

Your pack contains 50 g, so you can steep 10 g a total of 5 times.
In other words, you get around 90 cups (18 cups x 5).

At $28 per pack, that’s about 31 cents per cup.


Dry storage at all times (comes in a zip-lock, heat-sealed bag. BPA-free)
