I remember my first cup of hōjicha. Yes, it was amazing but it was also so much more. With just one whiff of its fragrant aroma, this tea had hooked me in. Then, as I savored its invigorating nutty flavor, it opened me up to a world of peace and well-being. And before I realized, I was enjoying the last sip of my first cup. However, that was just the beginning because I had found myself a wonderful chai-time companion. Now, does that make you want to have a cup of your own? Well, I understand! But before you go about doing that, let’s first take a closer look at hōjicha.
What is Hōjicha?
Hōjicha is a unique Japanese green tea that is prepared by roasting it in a porcelain pot over charcoal. This style of preparation, at an optimal temperature of 150°C, gives it a light golden color that truly sets it apart. Further, when prepared this way, it prevents oxidation and gives hōjicha a slew of benefits that are truly unparalleled. But Roshi surely goes the extra mile with their Spiced Hōjicha. Their combination of roasted hōjicha and soothing spices is like Batman and Robin.
What Makes Hōjicha The Single Malt of Teas?
No doubt, every cup of hōjicha is purely divine. But what makes it so good? Let’s find out!
Perfect for Caffeine Sensitivities
If you're sensitive to caffeine, drinking coffee every day would be out of the question. So what do you do then? Well, look for substitutes, of course! Like hōjicha.
Since hōjicha is prepared through roasting over charcoal, the heat burns away the tea's bitterness and caffeine content. This way, not only is it ideal for caffeine sensitivities, but also absolutely delicious!
Gives You The Gift of Natural Immunity
Green tea, including hōjicha, boasts of polyphenols that are known to have antiviral properties. Thus, it helps prevent viral infections like the common cold. Moreover, infused with a host of essential vitamins and earthy spices, hōjicha helps boost the immune system against unwanted bacteria. Finally, research also suggests that the catechins in this tea can help lower the risk of heart diseases.
Relieves Stress At The End Of A Tiring Day
Imagine this. After a long and tiring day, you come home and make yourself a warm, savory and aromatic cup of tea. Then, with every sip you take, you feel yourself leaving the weight of the world behind. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? And with hōjicha, this is actually possible!
Hōjicha contains an amino acid called L-Theanine that helps reduce anxiety. So, adding this tea to your chai-time routine is all the stress relief you’d ever want.
Keeps Your Skin Glowing And Youthful
Being a type of green tea, hōjicha is rich in antioxidants. These then help prevent the effects of aging on your skin, caused by free radicals. Additionally, the vitamin C it contains can help lighten up spots on your skin. (Goodbye, acne scars!)
