Hojicha (or: Houjicha) is a roasted green tea. The name is composed of the word 'hojiru' for 'toast' and the 'cha' for 'tea'. With a Horoku tea roaster you can even roast your own hojicha from your favourite green tea. KEIKO Hojicha is made from Kabusecha of the 1st and 2nd picking. Hojicha is probably the only green tea that has the right to have a red-brown cup colour. What otherwise indicates a lack of quality is in this case desired. Hochija is a great companion in both the cold and warm seasons. With its warm, mild and nut-like roasting aromas, a hot Hojicha is just right to warm up after a long winter walk. In Japan, Hojicha is often drunk with the whole family at dinner. But it is also great in the summer as a cold refreshment when you are out and about, doing sports or just to accompany your meals.

Storage

In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.

Ein Tee, der Erinnerungen weckt

Der Duft und der Geschmack dieses Houjichas wecken immer wieder aufs Neue die Erinnerung an das Teehaus, wo ich ihn an einem verregneten Herbsttag das erste Mal genießen durfte.

Mein Haustee

In Japan kennengelernt. Man kann ihn von morgens bis abends und auch zu Mahlzeiten wunderbar trinken. Von Keiko ist er am besten =)!

Grüntee mit intensiven Röstgeschmack

Der Houjicha schmeckt rauchig und nussig und erinnert mich an den Geschmack von Genmaicha. Die beiden Tees schmecken bestimmt gut zu Nussecken. Mir schmeckt der Tee sehr gut obwohl der Genmaicha mir noch etwas besser schmeckt.

Green Tea "with fire"

When it is getting colder outside, it is nice to have something warmer in the cup. Intensely fired green teas with their warm variety of flavours are particularly suitable.

Kabuse No. 1 - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Half shaded teas from the first picking like the Kabuse No. 1 have an aromatic touch of sweetness due to an increased theanine content, paired with a fine bitterness and fresh green. For this shaded Sencha from the first main picking, the first leaves sprouting from the tea bush are harvested. Kabusecha Kabusecha is a green tea for which the tea plants are shaded, thus forming a high content of chlorophyll and other active ingredients and at the same time little bitter substances. Their characteristic "shade aroma" is called "ooika".   Fukamushicha   Like many KEIKO teas, this is an intensively steamed tea (Fukamushi-cha, 100 - 120 seconds steaming time). Due to the gentle steaming process, the leaf pores open and the extracts from the tea leaf reach the water more easily and quickly. This can be recognized by the deep green tea colour in the cup and the yield of the tea - with top qualities up to 4 infusions are possible! Cold Brew       Intensively steamed early pickings are also particularly suitable for cold infusions (Mizudashi or Cold Brew). By infusing the leaves with cold water you will get an intensive and refreshing tea after only a few minutes. Since the bitter substances do not dissolve as strongly in cold water, the sweet aromas of the Kabusecha are especially noticeable. Storage In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.

Tea roaster for Hojicha
Item No. 40180.1 Tea roaster (Horoku) for your homemade Hojicha! Simply fill the Horoku with the tea of your choice and roast on low temperature on your gas stove. Shake the Horoku a few times and enjoy the fantastic smell in between. Take off the heat once you have reached the desired degree of roasting. This may be just slightly bronzed or roasted to a dark brown colour depending on your taste we recommend to prepare a little cuppa in different stages of roasting to experience the full range of aroma Hojija has to offer! Tip: Any green tea can be used for your personalized Hojicha. In Japan popular blends often include Kukicha (stem tea). The KEIKO Hojicha is made of a blend of Kabusecha from the first and second picking.

Genmaicha with Matcha - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Kabuse Genmaicha + Matcha is a traditional speciality made of green tea mixed with roasted rice (Genmai) and fresh green tea powder (Matcha). Kabusecha from the second picking is used for the KEIKO Genmaicha + Matcha creating a full flavour with a pleasant roasted note in the infusion. The Matcha Powder adds a magnificent, intense green colour as well as all its nutrients and aroma to the mix. The rich aroma makes Genmaicha a popular accompaniment to meals. When it is cold, the pleasant roasting aromas warm up, but even on warm days, a cold Genmaicha (prepared hot as usual and then set in the fridge to cool down) is a wonderful refreshment.   In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we ask you to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.

Dan - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Dan (english:"warm") is a Kabusecha from the early first picking in April. The stronger firing during drying gives this harmonious tea a deep green cup and its warm, voluminous fragrance.
