Our Organic Houjicha is a delicious Japanese green tea that has been roasted to perfection. This tea has a unique flavor and color that set it apart from other green teas, and its delightful taste is sure to please everyone. Hōjicha has less caffeine than other Japanese green teas because the roasting process reduces the solubility of the tea's caffeine. Hōjicha has a mellow, sweet taste and lacks the grassy flavor found in most other Japanese green teas.

Hōjicha is distinctive from other Japanese green teas because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed. The tea is fired at a high temperature, altering the leaf color tints from green to reddish-brown. The process was first performed in Kyoto, Japan, in the 1920s and its popularity persists today.

Coffee replacement?!

Some people are trying to taper away from coffee due to acid reflux and for bone health so this could be a nice way to enter into the tea world! Smells like roasted beans, taste is on grilled notes without any bitterness nor astringency! I think everybody would love this comforting flavours & aroma!
