Houjicha is one of the delicacies in the world of Japanese green tea. It is made of leaves of tea plants that are grown with fully-flooded sunlight. After harvested, the tea leaves go through an additional process - roasting over high heat. Houjicha produces full body brews with balanced nutty flavor and a hint of vanilla. It is also low in caffeine, perfect as an evening drink or for those who want to reduce caffeine intake.
