Hojicha

It’s made from leaves that are roasted until they’re dark brown. Because it’s picked at the end of the season and roasted at a higher heat than other teas, hojicha contains lower levels of caffeine.

I love cooking with "exotic" ingredients... will have to try the green tea as an ingredient, not just a hot, healthy drink.
Thanks.
