From Mountain Rose Herbs

Houjicha green tea is a classic beverage popularly sipped in China and Japan, and what makes this organic tea so delectable is that the freshly picked tea leaves have their fermentation period shortened by slowly roasting the whole leaves to a warm brown color. This process yields a cup which produces a lovely amber color, smooth texture, and without the tannic sharpness of traditional green teas. Lovers of Oolong will especially enjoy Houjicha

Nothing high end or fussy about this, it is nonetheless tasty and roasted, thus mellow. While it thrives in warmer water, it puts up with my office’s auto-heated water tap stuff and still offers just a little caffeine to get me through the day without napping at my desk.

A perfectly blend-able background for creative additions. It’s affordable, and the company has a staunch reputation as a fair trade and organic supplier.


do you find it that just by opening it, within a few days to a week, it acquires a sour smell? or is it just me?


I have not noticed this, frankly, but I also sometimes gently re-roast the leaves. And most often, I pan-roast barley and combine the two together for a really soothing brew.
