How To Make Cold Hojicha With Tea Bags

You can enjoy cold brew Hojicha as well.

The easiest way without failing, use a Hojicha tea bag.

Put a teabag in a glass bottle or glass jar in 2 cups of purified water then let it steep for around 3 hours.

Take out tea bags when you think it’s ready to go.

The basic ratio of the Hojicha tea bag to water is 1 tea bag for every 2 cups of water.

*in case 2g of tea leaves in a teabag.

I understand you want to bring out any tea essence from tea leaves as much as you can, however, tea leaves begin to deteriorate as time goes by.

Also, Hojicha will lose its flavor when leaving tea bags in the container.

Be sure to take out the teabag before storing it.

Be careful of deterioration, especially in the summertime.

Store it in the refrigerator and better to drink it within a day.

It’s true that Hojicha tea is less astringent and is easy to drink.

When you cold-brew for overnight, it will have a unique astringency, which I personally like, but for those who are not good at astringency and bitterness, steep loose tea for 3-5 hours.

As a tip, the astringency will be suppressed when you add ice cubes after serving.

In either way, strain loose tea leaves after steeping.

How To Cold-Brew Hojicha With Loose Tea

Needless to say, authentic cold brewing with loose tea can bring better cold hojicha.

Prepare a 40 oz glass pitcher, add 8 grams (1 1/3 tsp) of loose tea of water.

The basic ratio of Hojicha loose tea to water is 8 grams for every 40oz water.

Of course, it depends on the product and your taste, so you can adjust the flavor next time.

However, it is better to put a minimum of 6 grams per 40oz water.

Generally, there are two ways to make cold brew Hojicha.

  1. Steep loose tea in 1/2 cup of hot water for 1 minute. Then, add purified water.
  2. Simply, put loose tea and purified water.

Allow loose tea steeping for a minimum of 3 hours.

When leaving it overnight, you can enjoy a richer flavor of Hojicha. Yet, some people like cold brew Hojicha steeped for only 3 hours-can enjoy the refreshing and sweet taste.

It’s true that Hojicha tea is less astringent and is easy to drink.

When you cold-brew for overnight, it will have a unique astringency, which I personally like, but for those who are not good at astringency and bitterness, steep loose tea for 3-5 hours.

In either way, strain loose tea leaves after steeping.

Simply, using a disposable tea filter bag is easy and clean when the steeping time is done.

No tea leaves escape and are easy to dispose of after use.
