HOUJICHA tea is a type of Japanese green tea which is made from the sun-grown Japanese green tea known as bancha, harvested from the tea plant later in the season. HOUJICHA tea is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal at a high temperature, fact that alters the leaf color from green to reddish-brown. The tea leaves are roasted in a roasting pan at a temperature of approximately 200℃ and then immediately cooled. Through roasting, caffeine is sublimated and the HOUJICHA becomes less bitter. For this reason, it is said to be a tea that is easy to drink for children and elderly people. One may enjoy HOUJICHA's savory aroma and clear, light taste.
