If you’re looking for something a little more zen, then you might want to try out the Japanese Hojicha Organic tea from True Tea Co. This loose leaf roasted green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which is found in Japan and China.

What makes this tea unique is the way it’s processed. Unlike other green teas, Hojicha is roasted over charcoal, which gives it a nutty, smoky flavour that’s perfect for winding down after a long day.

Want to make the perfect cup of Japanese Hojicha? Here’s how:


  • 1 tbsp of Japanese Hojicha Organic tea leaves
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Boil the water in a kettle or on the stove.
  2. Add the Hojicha tea leaves to a tea infuser or teapot.
  3. Pour the hot water over the tea and let it steep for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea leaves and enjoy your perfectly brewed cup of Japanese Hojicha!

Whether you’re looking for something floral and sweet or nutty and smoky, these two drinks are sure to delight your taste buds. So sit back, relax and enjoy a taste of Asia!
