Question[edit]

"have a distinctively clear red appearance (as distinct from kōcha)"

Am I missing something? Kōcha, or black tea (or hongcha), is red in appearance. However, it is distinct from kōcha in that it is low in caffeine.

I agree ... and I would have a hard time describing a hojicha infusion as being "distinctly clear red" ... I imagine it depends on how long you steep it, but for me I would call it more of a golden/honey brown than "red". I made slight changes to wording as I felt appropriate.
