Sale price Price $29.95 Regular price

Houjicha (pronounced Ho-jee-cha) is a fantastic low caffeine alternative to coffee with a warm toasty flavour and aroma and is increasingly growing in popularity around the world. 

Houjicha is:

  • Roasted Green Tea and this makes it quite different to other Japanese Green Tea which are mostly steamed. 

  • This roasting method emerged early in the 20th century in Kyoto, when tea merchants started roasting leaves over charcoal. 

  • The roasting process has a decaffeinating effect on the leaves, making Houjicha a low-caffeine alternative for tea enthusiasts or as a coffee replacement.

  • The roasting process also changes the flavour of the tea. With a nutty taste, Houjicha is a unique tea in that it has a “roast” flavour that no other tea has.Interestingly enough, this flavour makes Houjicha taste quite a bit like freshly roasted coffee.

This 70 GRAMS OF HOUJICHA POWDER :

  • Is lightly roasted and has a pleasant warm and nutty aroma.

  • Originates from a blend of Sencha tea leaves supplied from several farmers in Kyoto, Japan.

NUTTY ROASTED HOUJICHA!

So excited when I got the parcel from Matcha Yu! Especially love the Houjicha with its nutty, roasted aroma and smooth consistency. I use the Matcha with an avocado smoothie every morning. It feels great to know that the packaging is compostable and the quality is definitely top notch!

A WARMING LATTE TO ENJOY

This houjicha has a sweet, nutty aroma and blends beautifully to make a warming latte - I've even found whisking it with cold milk is delicious too! I highly recommend it!
