type: green

origin: japan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Green tea from Japan that is rendered brown by roasting Bancha (a summer crop tea, harvested after Sencha) tea leaves. An Adagio customer favorite, with a toasty nutty flavor and slightly mesquite note. Earthy and warm quality, soothing, clean finish. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      Very nice earthy, roasted flavor. The vegetal undertones from the bancha leaves still come through giving this roasted green a nice level of complexity.

      Nice toasted pine nut and vegetal, almost seaweed. Brothy and really rich.

      I really, really liked this. I typically want flavored green tea but this was nutty and warming and delicious.

      The toasted flavor of this tea comes through really strongly, which I didn't love personally, but if you like roasted teas you'll enjoy this!

      I love the toastiness of this tea. There's no bitterness, and its a very unique green tea.

      Im a big fan of hojicha tea and this is a great one. Its smokey and earthy while still maintaining a fresh green tea flavor

      An amazing tea that took my by surprise. The flavor is toasty and nutty and so comforting.

      This is a very unique green tea and I wasn't expecting the flavor I got. It's a lot earthier than most greens, but makes for a nice change from the more standard flavors.

      Love love love the nutty notes! Hojicha is one of my favorite teas and the Hojicha from Adagio is one of my favorites!
