Houjicha (roasted green tea)
Houjicha is characterized by its unique aroma created by roasting tea at a high temperature. As the caffeine is minimal, Houjicha is easy on the stomach and is suitable for children, the elderly and the sick. You can enjoy its aroma by adding hot water in a similar way with Genmaicha.
It is ideal for Ochazuke, a popular dish made by pouring hot tea on top of a bowl of rice and adding pickles, pickled plums, Japanese dried seaweed or other ingredients of your choice.
Along with the farmers involved with the process of creating Japanese Tea, we produce the very finest Hojicha, daily researching how to create good soil, cultivation methods and manufacturing methods.
