These exquisite packages of Japanese tea are of the highest quality. Imported from Japan by air to Japan Centre to make sure that it is as fresh as possible, we use these teas in our own restaurant and even sell them to the Japanese Embassy here in London. This tea is premium Hoji Cha, which has a clear, light reddish-brown tint and a robust, roasted fragrance and flavour. The leaves for hojicha tea are made by roasting regular sencha and bancha leaves until they turn brown. The roasting gives the tea a smoky fragrance and flavour. Like other teas it is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols. These help prevent cancer, keep the heart healthy and aid general well-being.
