If hojicha is a green tea, why is its colour brown?

The answer is roasting

Hojicha tea is brown, even though it is classified as a green tea, because of its specific processing. While most green teas are steamed after harvesting, to preserve their green colour, hojicha undergoes a high temperature roasting process. This turns the tea leaves from green to brown.

Bio Kyosun hojicha roasted green tea powder

One plant, hundreds of flavours

Roasting not only changes the colour of the tea, but also affects its flavour and aroma, providing it with a characteristic roasted tone and slightly caramel taste. Thanks to this unique processing, hojicha offers a completely different flavour profile compared to traditional green teas, even though it comes from the same plant (Camellia sinensis) as other green teas.

What is the difference between matcha and roasted hojicha tea?

Matcha and roasted hojicha tea are both types of Japanese green tea, but they differ in many aspects, from the production process to their taste and colour. Each of these teas offers unique benefits and has its own place in Japanese tea culture.

1. The Production Process

Matcha Comes from finely ground tencha leaves that have been grown in the shade for several weeks before harvesting to increase their chlorophyll and amino acid content. After harvesting, the leaves are dried and stripped of their stems and veins, then ground into a very fine powder.
Hojicha Is roasted at a high temperature. This reduces the caffeine content and changes the colour of the leaves from green to brown. Hojicha can be made from the leaves and stems.

2. Taste and Aroma

Matcha It has a rich, full flavour with balanced umami notes. The taste is intense and fresh due to its high chlorophyll content.
Hojicha Has a unique roasted tone and taste similar to caramel. Hojicha is perceived as more delicate compared to matcha.

3. Colour

Matcha Bright green colour which is due to the leaves’ high chlorophyll content.
Hojicha It has a brown colour that comes from the roasting process.

Where is Bio Kyosun Hojicha grown?

The real hojicha is grown in Japan. Japan is known for its variety of tea regions, which produce different types of green tea. Each region produces „its own tea“ due to its specific climate, soil type and altitude.

Can I use hojicha as an ingredient in food?

Hojicha can be a great way to add an interesting twist to your dishes and drinks. In the beginning, it’s worth experimenting with the amount of powder so that the taste of hojicha isn’t too dominant in your food.

Try for example:

  • Baking:  cookies, pies, muffins, cheesecakes,…
  • Ice cream and desserts: ground hojicha tea is suitable for the preparation of original desserts such as ice cream, panna cotta,…
  • Beverages: latte, smoothie, cocktails,…
  • Marinades and sauces: adds a rich flavour and light smokiness to meats and tofu
  • Creams and fillings: the powder can also be incorporated into creams, fillings or glazes for cakes and other desserts
