Clearspring Organic Hojicha is grown in the luscious rolling hills around Kyoto and Kyushu, areas known for their ideal climatic and soil conditions which produce some of the ﬁnest tea in Japan. The unique character of Hojicha comes from ageing and roasting the tea leaves, giving them a distinct nutty aroma and smoky ﬂavour. Whilst our Hojicha can be enjoyed at any time of the day, it is perfect after a meal or as a calming evening tea to help you unwind.
Place 2 heaped teaspoons of tea per person in a teapot. Boil fresh water and pour over the tea. Infuse for 2-3 minutes and enjoy.

In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
Lovely tea to replace black tea. Also good with soyamilk.
Hojicha is now the only tea I drink since I discovered it in a Soto zen monastery in France.
I am unable to drink black or other green tea found in supermarkets in general as it makes me hyper and unwell.
Hojicha from Clearspring however is perfect for me, it wakes me up gently, I can drink it all day or before bed, it gives me comfort throughout this winter time. The smell and taste of a fresh brew always puts a smile on my face.
Thank you Clearspring for bringing this amazing tea all the way to us, for the quick delivery and hassle free order. I will definitely order again.
