This spring harvest Hojicha comes to us from the highest slopes of Kirishima (Southern Japan). Cultivated without the use of any chemicals on nutrient-rich volcanic soil, the latter has an aromatic aspect very different from the other green teas on our menu since its leaves have been carefully roasted. When infused, they release an amber liquor with beautiful aromatic nuances of butterscotch, red fruits, autumn honey and dry-roasted hazelnut. Digestible, comforting and low in caffeine, hojicha is a perfect companion for chilly evenings or to accompany the most gourmet desserts...
