Hojicha is a Japanese green tea that has been roasted. Traditionally, the green tea was processed in this manner in a porcelain pot over charcoal at 150 °C.
Roasting the tea helps to not only prevent oxidation but also develop a beautiful light brown / light golden color.
And on top of that, the flavor is about as earthy, roasty and nutty as a Japanese tea can get.
Note that hojicha has very little caffeine content and is commonly consumed all throughout the day. It's especially popular after meals or with dessert because it helps balance out the sweetness!
