Houjicha Gold Green Tea
This Houjicha Green tea is unusual! Made by roasting sencha instead of bancha, resulting in a much more intense flavour with lingering buttery sun flower tones. 40grams.
Houhicha green tea is made by Japanese tea farmers in the town of Wazuka in Kyoto using traditional methods. We buy this green tea directly from the farmers and import it ourselves to ensure its freshness. This particular Japanese green tea is roasted over a charcoal fire in a clay pot. This type of roasting process gently removes the moisture from the leaves changing their colour from a vibrant green to an earthy brown. It also dramatically reduces the caffeine content of the green tea leaves making it a favourite to drink in the evening, especially after dinner.
