Houjicha, a roasted Japanese green tea of stems and leaves

Tea and toast, that most beloved of pairings, combine here in this hearty low-caffeine brew for any time of day or night. An exception to Japan’s usual steam-processing creed, houjicha is toasted to yield robust aromas of nuts and malt, underscored with waves of fresh green.

Japanese tea processing etiquette is usually quite strict when it comes to not treating the leaves too extensively. However, in order to produce their beloved houjicha tea, they make an exception that seems astonishing by Japanese standards: Once the leaves and stems have been steamed and rolled, they additionally get roasted (either in a porcelain pot or over charcoal). Such undogmatic processing results in a brownish liquor that has delicate notes of both nuts and malt. Furthermore, since the above-mentioned treatment makes the leaves less sensitive to heat, you can easily brew houjicha at unusually high temperatures. What’s more: houjicha is low in caffeine, goes well with almost any meal, and even makes a hearty iced tea!

A nice surprise

I'm still quite a novice, and this is the first roasted green tea I've tried so I can't compare it to others but it was a very nice discovery, and pairs well with a lot of foods, sweet or salty. I really enjoy this one.

Perfekt für den Alltag

Ich liebe Hojicha generell, aber diesen aufgrund seiner bescheidenen, japanischen Komplexität besonders! Im kalten Sommer gern auch als Cold Brew! Wenig Koffein, wird durch das Rösten größtenteils "abgebaut" (ich bin da unempfindlich, aber für andere vielleicht wichtig), daher zu jeder Tageszeit geeignet.
Mundgefühl: sehr vollmundig, zurückhaltend, "freundlich", angenehme, leicht trockene, süße Säure (erinnert an Reisessig)
Aromen/Geschmack: Noriblatt/Wakame, Gerste, Schokolade, frische Farbe, Harz, Butter, Popcorn

Ein Hauch von Pfirsich-Aroma (meine ich mir einzubinden), sehr fein Tee.

Perfekt als Coldbrew

So lecker und perfekt als Coldbrew! Malzig, süß, sehr gutes Röstaroma.

Wie in Japan

Hojicha so wie ich ihn auch in Japan kennengelernt habe. Sehr zu empfehlen.
