From Pure Aroma Tea

Bancha is the late-harvested autumnal green tea of Japan. Houjicha is roasted Bancha and has a refreshing and nourishing toasted flavour with great warmth, subtlety and complexity. Houjicha can be enjoyed at any time of day and is an excellent drink for a sunny afternoon in late summer and early autumn. It is well suited to drinking after dinner due to its palate-cleansing toasty flavour and its low caffeine content – this is not a tea that will keep you awake at night.

Backlog from sometime in January.

Thank you to Raritea for this tea! I am really enjoying it – I deviated from my usual choose-my-own-brewing-parameters and went with their recommendation of 30s at boiling, and it was wonderful. Nutty, sweet, roasty, savoury; great in a travel mug (and better out of, I’m sure). Really quite tasty, so I’m sad that Raritea didn’t find it as good! (Although if she had, maybe I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to try it!) Anyhow, I was quite happy with this tea, and will probably keep a houjicha of some variety (I haven’t had enough to know the flavour difference between bancha houjicha and regular houjicha) in stock.
