    This tea is grown on the highest tea plantation in Japan, and even in difficult conditions on steep slopes, tea growers have protected the plantation and continued the tradition for 600 years. The finest tea leaves from Mino Shirakawa, which are rare and of high quality and produced in small quantities, are carefully processed into hojicha, also known as "natural gyokuro.

    This tea is made from the finest tea leaves produced in Mino Shirakawa.

    This tea is characterized by a good balance of two components: catechin, an astringent component commonly found in green tea, and pyrazine, an aromatic component produced by roasting high-quality tea leaves, which allows you to enjoy its mild aroma.
    Brew 2 g (1 tsp) of tea leaves in boiling water. If you can take your time, cold water brewing is also mild and recommended.
    Houjicha can be used not only as a straight tea, but also in many other ways. It can be mixed with milk, herbs such as mint, lemon balm, dill and rosemary, and spices such as ginger and cardamom. It also goes well with caramel and chocolate flavored sauces.
    This tea is certified Gifu Clean Agriculture and is grown without the use of pesticides throughout the growing season.

    Oxidation is a risk for Japanese tea and changes its shelf life. After opening the package, please fold the opening part of the aluminum tea bag and let the air out thoroughly, then fasten it with a rubber or stopper. This will prevent oxidation better than transferring to a can.
