Hojicha is made by roasting bancha or other tea leaves over high heat until they turn brown.
It is recommended after meals as it refreshes the mouth.
Hojicha, made from Bancha, has less caffeine than Sencha.
If you want to drink before going to bed, hojicha, which has less caffeine, is a good choice.
It is also mildly irritating, so it is safe for the elderly and infants.
