For centuries Uji has produced the most highly regarded tea in Japan. The clean, smooth taste of Nagata Teas reflects the care and concern they give to their crops and the environment. Mitoku Organic Hojicha is a high quality, traditional green tea with a distinctive, smoky flavor and aroma. Hojicha is made from select bancha tea leaves that are gently roasted, then cooled and hermetically sealed at once to keep in their rich, appetizing flavor. Refreshing and mild, Nagata Organic Hojicha is suitable for any time of day. Ready to drink in an instant, it is ideal for use at home, work or when traveling. Use for a warming and invigorating hot tea, or chill for a cooling and refreshing summer beverage. Hojicha is known as "Bancha" in Japan.
