This tea called "Akane" is made from leaf stalks that have been carefully roasted over high heat to bring out their aromatic flavors. After sipping, enjoy an aftertaste that is refreshing and rich in flavor. Since this tea has low caffeine content, it is a popular choice for pregnant women and the elderly. While other types of hojicha are typically roasted twice, this Igarashien hojicha has been roasted four times. The extra roasting time results in a hojicha that is bursting with aroma and flavor. Igarashien's roasting technique has been established through decades of research and persistence. We recommend trying this tea mixed with milk and sugar to create a simple yet delicious "hojicha latte".
