The tea leaves that are made into hojicha are not limited to young buds. It can be seen in the picture that the upper roasted tea uses more tea stems than the lower one

Some people think that more tea stems reflect the lower quality of the tea. However, tea stems contain more theanine than buds, and the sweetness is more obvious.

Hojicha is easier to store than matcha
