Or literally fried tea, that's how they call Houjicha. It has a red-brown color and an unforgettable roasted aroma.

This tea belongs to non-fermented tea, that is, it is not the same as black tea. Its color and taste is formed due to rapid frying in porcelain, and then sharp cooling. And it is prepared from sencha and bancha.

This tea has a low caffeine and catechin content due to roasting. However, I acquire a special taste, associated with everyone in different ways: baked bread, popcorn, charred wood, caramel.

Taste description

Має приємний запах копченості та запеченої карамелі. У смаку ніжне тіло, легкий відтінок умамі, нотки карамельного попкорну.

How brew Houjicha?

The Japanese method:

Heat the dishes in which you will prepare the tea.
Ideal for short brewing times.
Add 4 g of tea and pour 120 g of water at 90°C / 194°F. Insist for 30 seconds and sift to the last drop.
Repeat the step, but increase the infusion time by 10-15 seconds

The European method:

We recommend using 5-7g of tea.
Add 350-400g of water at 95°C / 203°F to the kettle and let it brew for 90 seconds

Enjoy :)
