Houjicha is a traditional style of Japanese green tea made with pure bancha tea leaves from the autumn and winter harvests. Its uniqueness comes from an additional hot roasting step that transforms bancha tea leaves into light to dark brown leaves resulting in an amber-red infusion brew. It is soft on the palate with a balanced, delicate finish.


Houjicha is a smooth flavor with accents of chocolate and toasted barley.



Kirishima region (Kagoshima, Japan), also known as "tensonkourin" in Japanese myths, is deeply shrouded in fog, as the name describes ("Kiri" = fog, "shima"), and grows fragrant and delicious teas at an altitude ranging from 350 to 500 meters above sea elevation.
