Lightly roasted Japanese style hojicha tea.

This is a big daily tea in Japan for very good reason, the light roasting is completely delicious to many millions of tea fans. Hojicha brews very quickly and should be tasted after just 30 seconds rather than wait the usual several minutes to infuse. Hojicha also reinfuses very well and is frequently reinfused with hot water several times.  Tregothnan has developed hojicha making processes over many years and was honoured to have served this tea to the G7 Leaders in Cornwall. Indeed the Japanese Prime Minister had his delegation despatched to Tregothnan from their G7 summit base to purchase additional supplies of the fine handmade Japanese style teas to take back to  Japan. If you think Japanese style tea is not for you, hojicha has the potential to surprise and delight.

About us

Rare plants have been nurtured by the same family at Tregothnan since 1334. The first tea was grown in the UK in 1999 to put the ‘English into English Tea’ and the most British tea in history was first sold in 2005.

Now, over 26 miles of tea bushes thrive in the unique microclimate, seven miles inland and with a deep-sea creek bringing regular fog. Manuka bushes have also thrived here since the 1880’s, the first grown outside of New Zealand and producing the most delicious honey.
