This tea is handpicked from the first harvest of 100% organic tea grown in Kagoshima, Japan. Kagoshima boasts some of the highest quality Japanese organic teas, and this one is produced at an elevation of 550m, providing an ideal environment far from any population. The result is a houjicha with a robust flavor that's full-bodied and naturally sweet, accompanied by subtle hints of smoky cocoa.

Not all organic teas are equal, as some sacrifice flavor and texture due to the quality of the organic fertilizer used. However, this houjicha stands out as both organic and extra special. The secret lies in the fact that the garden is a 100% organic farm, unlike many other farms that compromise flavors to cater to organic tea enthusiasts.

Unlike typical houjichas, which are often processed from lower-grade teas harvested during the second season, this one is made from leaves picked during the first harvest. First-harvest tea is traditionally reserved for high-quality Japanese green tea, making this houjicha a rare and top-grade delicacy. This houjicha is also roasted much longer than most other houjicha. The result is a houjicha with a much deeper flavor and a lingering aftertaste that feels like it lasts forever. It combines a unique aromatic smokiness with notes of cocoa.

Steeping this houjicha is effortless. You can try cold brewing this tea overnight (5g per 150ml water) or use water just below boiling (190°F/85°C) for about 30 seconds to extract its maximum flavor. Its bold flavor, enhanced by its natural sweetness, will instantly captivate your senses. It's perfect for a relaxing afternoon session with friends or as a post-meal beverage to prevent bloating and that greasy feeling afterward.

Furthermore, this houjicha makes a perfect companion to your favorite sweet desserts, enhancing the overall indulgence of your culinary experience.

 

Notes: Buckwheat, Roasted Rice

I like it even more now

When I tried it first in store, I liked it but didn’t know that I will actually like it even more as I started drinking it at home. I love its rich but not overpowering flavor. I can enjoy it by itself without any desserts even though I love desserts with tea:) This tea has its own pleasant flavor.
