What is Nekoneko Bread Chestnut and Hojicha?Bread baked with astringent chestnuts sandwiched between hojicha dough and plain dough to create a zebra-patterned cat. The hojicha dough offers the rich aroma of hojicha tea, while the plain dough has a milky taste.
The astringent chestnuts sandwiched in between provide an accentuated texture. You can feel the deepening of autumn and the coming of winter with the taste of chestnuts.
What is the "hojicha" of tea specialty store Myoko-en?This tea specialty store was established in 1916. Tea masters visit tea production areas throughout Japan to select the best tea leaves, and use their advanced blending techniques to provide teas that are particular about aroma, taste, and color.
Myoko-en's "hojicha" is the company's signature product, with a particular focus on aroma and taste. It was recommended as an excellent sightseeing specialty product by the Nagoya Tourism Brand Association in 2021. At the Sun Road and Sakaechika stores, freshly roasted hojicha is sold in a hojicha machine, and locals are said to be familiar with the smell of Myoko-en's hojicha when they get off the subway.
