"tcha-tcha Hojicha" is a high-quality product of ZENJIRO's second brand green tea. This green tea leaves grown in the natural terroir of Japan's most noble cypress timber producing area, and is a very rare green tea that only produced 1 / 1000th of Japan's gross production. The share to the world green tea production is only 0.004%. The fog rising from the river to the mountain at an altitude of 800m moderately blocks sunlight and tea leaves become very soft.


We carefully selected the most high qualitied tea leaves of Mino Shirakawa’s green tea cultivation, which has a history of over 600 years. It is suitable for free styled tasting and easy to extract by both hot and cold water.

tcha-tcha - Hojicha Tea Bag 200g

  • Hojicha is green tea with roasted tea leaves.
    Roasted green tea leaves contain tannin, which is attracting attention for its anti-cancer effect. Some researches have also shown that pyrazine, which is contained in a unique scent, improves blood flow, prevents blood clots from forming, and has a relaxing effect.
    Another characteristic of Hojicha is that it has less caffeine. The interaction with theanine makes caffeine's awakening action mild.
    You can enjoy it straight or as a latte mixed with milk.

    If hot, extract theanine at boiled soft water and enjoy the flavor. You can relax. You can enjoy it even in the cold water extracted drink. In that case, please extract it with longer time (more than 10 minutes is reccomended).
