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.
