Hojicha is a relatively new style of green tea, it was first produced in the 1920's in Kyoto, Japan when local tea merchants where left with a surplus of lesser quality green tea leaves from the end of the picking season they were unable to sell so instead decided to try gently roasting the leaves over charcoal to make the tea more desirable. The intense aroma that came from this new variety was so tantalising that the tea became highly sought after and higher quality leaves began to be used to produproduce an even better quality product.
