Japanese organic, tea, What is Houji-cha (Roasted Tea)?

Houji tea, Roasted tea (non-fermented tea)


You may think that roasted tea is a kind of oolong tea or black tea because of its brown appearance and its aroma.

However, roasted tea is actually a type of green tea that is not fermented at all. How hojicha is made is by roasting the tea leaves.

The reason why hojicha has a unique aroma and taste is because it is roasted using fire, and that is why it is brown in color even though it is not fermented. The bitterness and astringency are also quite suppressed, giving it a gentle taste, and it is also gentle on the stomach, making it suitable for drinking tea during meals.
