Houjicha is a Japanese green tea (Bancha), that is roasted at a high temperature (leaf color tints from green to reddish brown). This rare and most popular tea satisfies both the senses of taste and smell, has a rich amber colored liquor and a nutty earthy aroma, usually served during afternoon meals & before bed.
To Make Tea: Add 1-2 teaspoons of green tea into your teapot. Pour water (160°F to 170°F) into the teapot, and steep for approximately 2-3 minutes. Strain and serve..
