Superior Miyazaki Hojicha is an excellent organic Japanese tea from Gokase Town in Miyazaki. It is made from a selection of ichibancha first flush stems and leaves, that are lightly roasted in the traditional pan-fired method in order to achieve a hojicha of exceptionally fine quality with outstanding aroma and the smoothest, sweet-toasted nectar!
The fine aromatics of this luxury hojicha come from a combination of both pan-firing and roasting the leaves. This combination produces an aroma that is quite different from steamed tea leaves that have been roasted into hojicha; and to us this produces a delightful cup that is also superior. Superior Miyazaki Hojicha is more refreshing, more stimulating, and a little flowery, without any excessive smokiness or roastedness.
On the palate this tea is a complete purist's delight, it is as smooth as you can imagine, and offers a bouquet of wonderful stimulating sweetly roasted flavors with a touch of green in the mix!
