From Tea Runners

Although this tea brews to a dark and lovely amber hue, Houjicha is a green tea by nature.

Traditional Bancha Japanese green tea is taken through an extra roasting step to transform it into this chocolaty smooth treasure with milder levels of caffeine, which means it can also be enjoyed into the evening.

A bonus for coffee lovers will be the savory coffee bean notes on the finish.

Ingredients: Green tea.
Origin: Kagoshima prefecture, Japan
Caffeine: LOW

Gongfu!

This was a gifted sample from this month’s subscription box.

This is a bit more of a stem heavy houjicha with a little bit of a lighter roast to it, but the resulting liquor once steeped is sweet and golden with flavours of toaster hazelnuts, creamy peanut butter, and an almost amaretto or marzipan-like almondy sweetness to the aftertaste. A total explosion of cozy and delicious flavours to accompany the roast. This month was the hardest one to choose teas for yet as almost all the options seemed up my alley; in the end I decided to get a few new teas and restock a couple blends I’ve tried and loved in the past! On top of, of course, proving yet again that there’s no limit to how much Houjicha one person should own.
