Houjicha (hor-jee-cha) is a roasted, flavoursome green tea that has lingering savoury, toasty notes, and a beautiful golden-brown liquor. Houjicha starts off as a steamed green tea however the leaves go through an additional step of roasting during processing, which transforms the flavour profile from vegetal to roasted and nutty. If you’re a black tea drinker, this is a good entry point for your green tea journey. Enjoy Houjicha with meals or at any time of the day.  It also makes an excellent base for an iced green tea creations and can be cold brewed easily.

    I really enjoyed the warm, earthy flavours of this tea, and it’s so gentle on the stomach in the morning. And great that’s it’s grown and packed locally, less carbon footprint on the earth. Thank you for making tea meditation that extra enjoyable.

    This tea is so yummy and comforting. I have been enjoying drinking it before bed, after dinner, and I don’t find that it keeps me awake like other teas do. It smells great.

    Also if you add a bit of vanilla essence to it, it takes totally like a chocolate chip cookie.

    Thanks again Perfect South.
