Houjicha

When processing Gyokuro and Sencha, the tea plants are sorted into three categories: leaves, stems, and powder. Green tea that consists mostly of stems (Karigane) is roasted over a hot flame to produce Houjicha. This process brings out a savoury fragrance, and provides the tea with a unique flavour. Houjicha is often used as a side beverage during meals, as it clears your mouth and has a balancing effect for greasy food. Because of its low caffeine content, it is often recommended for children and is suitable to drink before sleeping. When cooled with ice, Houjicha is a perfect drink for those hot summer days!

Green tea that consists mostly of stems (Karigane) is roasted over a hot flame to produce Houjicha. The popularity of our 'Kaori Fumi' Houjicha is said to be its noticeably nutty and mesquite taste. The roasting process lowers the caffeine content of the tea leaves, so if you are looking for a low-caffeinated green tea, this is a wonderful choice! In the summer, please boil the leaves for 30 seconds and refrigerate before adding some ice cubes. This will make a delicious and amazingly refreshing summer beverage.
