Houjicha (Organic)

$ 8.99 $ 17.99

Don't let all of that brown leaf fool you! Houjicha is a very popular roasted green tea in Japan made that much more unique because it consists of both leaves and stems. In this case, the leaves are from much later in the season, the autumn harvest. The roasting process provides a rich, nutty flavor while the stems provide a smoky accent. 

The tea is grown by the Kinezuka family in Fujieda (Shizuoka prefecture). The family has been practicing organic farming on their 2 hectares of mountainous land by producing delicious green tea and mikan (similar to a tangerine) for 36 years.

***The joy of green tea! Most of our green tea leaves can be steeped multiple times. When brewing the same leaves for a second, third or even fourth time, increase the steep time by 1-2 minutes.
