How to prepare the Hojicha Tea?

It is very easy to prepare Hojicha, you only have to be careful about the amount of water and the infusion time. As this product comes in packed teabags (6gr), you will not have to measure the correct amount of tea per serving.

  • Step 1

    Prepare 200ml boiling water.

    It is best to use soft, clean water. When using tap water, open the lid of the kettle to get rid of any smell of chlorine.

  • Step 2

    Place the tea bag in a cup or Japanese-style teapot (250-380ml). Pour hot water onto it, then move the tea bag up and down a few times to achieve a fuller taste (do not do this for too long or the tea may get bitter).

  • Step 3

    Leave the tea to soak for 30 seconds. Then remove the teabag. When using a Japanese-style teapot, be sure to pour all the tea! (This is important as you can use one tea bag for three servings.)

Three times the pleasure!

1 Teabag x 3 servings

One of the best characteristics of Hojicha is that you can make three servings using the same leaves.

The Japanese call this first, second and third tea respectively. The taste will be slightly different each time, which is another special pleasure.

The tea can be soaked a little longer for the second and third serving, according to taste.
