This wonderful green tea is carefully produced by gently roasting the leaves over an intensely high heat. Traditionally left for longer, after the first and second flush, the maturity of the leaves offer a wonderful reddish-brown infusion, which gives way to the most refreshing taste and a deeply rich, nutty aroma.
Imparting an exceptional, caramel flavour, whilst still retaining the creamy undertones making this green tea so special.
Houjicha has less astringency and caffeine, making it the perfect, relaxing after-dinner drink.
