Product Description

Houjicha is a Bancha that has been roasted over charcoal. It has a distinctive woodsy flavor with tones of green underneath. The liquor has a medium honey hue and provides a heartiness that coffee converts appreciate.

Insider Tip: Hojicha became more well-known in the 1920s, when tea merchants began roasting leaves over charcoal. Hojicha is made from a bancha that is grown in the sun and picked after the first two flushes. The roasting process dimishes the caffeine level, making it a drinkable tea any time of day.

Caffeine Level: Low.

Green teas are unoxidized and process by withering or wilting, followed by pan-firing or steaming, then a shaping process. During the shaping processes, further drying takes place, giving each green tea a distinct shape, character, and flavor. Often shaped by hand in places like China or Vietnam, the skill to craft these teas is passed down from generation to generation. In Japan, most of the tea processing is done mechanically, using machines and conveyor belts to steam, shape, and cool the teas.

Ingredients: Green tea from Japan.

Love or hate? That's up to you

This is a very unique tea that seems to inspire either adoration or disgust. To sum up the taste: Toasted Nori (dried seaweed used to wrap sushi). My brother and I love it, my fiancé hates it. If you like toasted nori snacks, you will like this.
Great Green Tea

I am normally a lapsong souchong (sp) drinker and often bored by green teas. Yet Houjicha is the green tea for lovers of full, smoky teas such as lapsong - Houjicha is, although an almost trite term, robust. Enjoy!
