Hojicha is produced using a 3rd flush Bancha style leaf known as Sanbancha. The plucked leaves are steamed and dried in a style similar to that of Sencha. Next the dried leaf is roasted over a low heat - the low roasting temperature imparts a sweet taste and nice fresh aroma. This roasting process results in a tea with a reddish colour and light cup with a very unique flavour.
