Hello from a Japanese green tea drinker

by francoismathieu » Oct 8th 18 12:25 am

Hey everyone! Francois here from Toronto, Canada.

I have been drinking tea for nearly two decades, and I have been obsessed with finding the best Japanese green teas.

I usually drink tea 2-3 times per day: matcha in the morning, sencha in the afternoon, and hojicha in the evening.

I'm also a Japanese green tea merchant at https://hojicha.co/, specializing in hojicha roasted green tea.

Feel free to ask me anything!

Hello, welocme to the forum! I am from the UK as you can see and love, and I mean absolutely love green tea! Can you tell me more about Hojicha tea? How is that virtually caffeine free!

The roasting process of hojicha reduces the caffeine content. Just like for coffee beans, the darker the roast, the lower the caffeine!
