Japanese roasted sesame green tea, often referred to as “Goma Hojicha,” is a distinctive and flavourful blend that marries the toasty, caramelised notes of Hojicha with the rich, nutty flavour of roasted sesame seeds.

Goma Hojicha is commonly enjoyed in Japan as a warm, comforting beverage, often paired with meals or as a relaxing drink in the evening.

What is Hojicha?

Hojicha is a type of Japanese green tea that is roasted at high temperatures, transforming its colour from green to reddish-brown and giving it a unique flavour profile that is less astringent and more toasty compared to other green teas.

Taste & Aroma

The combination of Hojicha green tea and roasted sesame seeds results in a harmonious blend of flavours. The tea has a sweet, nutty, and slightly smoky taste with a smooth finish.

It offers a warm, toasty aroma with hints of caramel, nuts and a subtle earthiness.

Health Benefits

Hojicha has a lower caffeine content compared to other green teas, making it suitable for those sensitive to caffeine or looking for a relaxing evening tea.

Both Hojicha and sesame seeds contain antioxidants that help protect the body from oxidative stress and inflammation.

Sesame seeds are rich in healthy fats, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health.

Keep at room temperature.

Making the tea

Boil water and let it cool slightly to around 90°C

Steep for 2-3 minutes, depending on personal preference for strength or flavour.

Hojicha can be steeped multiple times, with each infusion bringing out different aspects of the tea’s flavour.

You can add a touch of honey for a sweeter experience.
