Houjicha green tea is a classic beverage popularly sipped in China and Japan, and what makes this organic tea so delectable is that the freshly picked tea leaves have their fermentation period shortened by slowly roasting the whole leaves to a warm brown color. The roasty flavors of Houjicha are compared by some to coffee, securing it a place at the breakfast table as well as the sushi bar. It can be nutty, earthy and somewhat caramelly, while retaining the creamy undertones so special to some green teas. Lovers of Oolong will especially enjoy this loose leaf Houjicha Tea!


Slow Roasted | Smooth Flavor | Certified Organic


Suggested Use: Steep for 30 to 90 seconds. 4-8 grams of tea per 6 ounces of water. Shorter infusions of hojicha may produce a slightly "fresher" spectrum of flavors, while longer infusions will be nuttier and more developed. Reinfusion is possible up to two more times—you'll know when the roasty leaves are exhausted.


Precautions:
Specific: Contains caffeine.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Nice Houjicha Review by

Houjicha is a very unique style of green tea, quite unlike any other. Some love it, others don't. I love it :)

This one from Mood & Mind is a very good example of the style. An initial smokiness gives way to a lingering honey-like sweetness with notes of roasted nuts and an autumn campfire.

Very good, I highly recommend it for all lovers of green tea. (Posted on 9/4/2015)
