Houjicha (also known as Hojicha) 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 30 grams of Dark Roasted Houjicha Powder in this set:

  • Has a deep and smoky flavour taste with subtle notes of chocolate and coffee.

  • Originates from a blend of Sencha and Bancha tea leaves from the 2018 harvest supplied from several farmers in Kyoto, 

    Japan.

  • Comes in Eco-friendly Home Compostable Packaging sourced from Econic.  The Product Label is also home compostable, sourced from Black Rainbow Printing.

  • Our Certified Econic Home Compostable Packaging is perfect for storing matcha as it protects it from exposure to air, heat and light that make Matcha appear dull and bitter.
  • Econic® packaging is made from three compostable films derived from sustainably-produced wood pulp and GM-free corn sources.
