Matcha & Hojicha

Hojicha is a Japanese green tea, known for its distinctive way of preparation, in which it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. Similarly, Matcha is a finely ground powder of green tea leaves, widely consumed within Japan.

What is the difference between Matcha & Hojicha?

Despite both originating from Japanese green teas,Matcha andHojicha share many differences. Initially, the teas present vast colour differences- Matcha is of bright green tones while Hojicha has a dark reddish-brown colour, although both slightly alter depending on harvest times and quality. 


Both of the teas alter in appearance as they undertake different grinding processes. Matcha powder involves stone-grinding flat dried tea leaves, in which a fine green powder is formed. Whereas Hojicha traditionally involves slowly roasting tightly rolled dried leaves, stems and stalks which creates a loose leaf tea. Hojicha is commonly ground to create a fine powder.   


The taste is a large difference amongst Matcha and Hojicha. Matcha that is of high-quality tends to be slightly sweet with a savoury base flavour, whereas lower grade matcha generally has a bitter taste. Hojicha embodies a naturally sweet taste, with nutty elements. 


The caffeine content in Matcha is quite high, being similar to that of a coffee at around 70mg per cup. However, Hojicha tea has a low caffeine content, with around 8mg of caffeine per serving.
