This exceptional Houjicha tea is grown 100% chemical and pesticide-free. It is green tea made with tea leaves from the autumn and winter harvests. Hot roasting transforms the tea into light brown leaves that brew an amber-red infusion.
Houjicha is technically still a green tea because the oxidation process is stopped. The roasting offers a smooth flavor with accents of chocolate, coffee, and roasted barley. The roasting also lowers the caffeine level, making for a mild cup that can be enjoyed any time.
