Region - Green Tea from Japan

Tasting Notes - Woody, Sweet, Nutty


Houjicha is a unique Japanese tea. Like most Japanese green teas, the leaves are picked, steamed, shaped, and dried. After drying, Houjicha goes through an extra step -- it is roasted over charcoal fire in a ceramic pot. This roasting creates the tea's beautiful bronze color and sweet nutty flavor.

WORD FROM OUR FOUNDERS

Houjicha is one of my favorite teas. The sweet and nutty flavor profile has a very refreshing and homey quality to it that you cannot find in any other tea.

Charles

I love roasted stuff...roasted nuts, beef, coffee, pies, potatoes... you name it. It only makes sense that I love Houjicha as well.
