HOUJICHA

WHAT IS HOUJICHA ?

Roasted in porcelain pot over charcoal, houjicha, hojicha (ほうじ茶) is made from green tea leaves and stems that have been steamed (shiraore). Houjicha is still green tea despite its chestnut color that will remind you of black tea. The fermentation process has been stopped, so you benefit from the full power of green tea antioxidants. Super easy to prepare, you simply pour boiling water over it and let it brew for 30 seconds.

The roasting process lowers the caffeine contents of the tea, and so houjicha has next to no bitterness and it can be enjoyed anytime during the day by everyone. Very affordable yet delicious, houjicha is loved by families and tea farmers throughout Japan, especially during meals.

then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know."
