There are many ways to categorize tea. The most common is by color, such as white, green, or black. Tea grading categorizes tea by quality (determined by leaf wholeness and content). In Japan, teas can also be categorized by the way they are processed, such as steamed Sencha or ground Matcha. Hojicha, which is made from Bancha tea (second flush Sencha), is unique because it is roasted. During roasting, the tea leaves change color and flavor and lose some of their caffeine. For this reason, Hojicha is often used as a nighttime tea or for children and the elderly.
