HOUJICHA is a japanese green tea,

but is distinguished from other green teas by the roasting process.

Houjicha is also roasted at a high temperature after steaming.

The roasting process turns the green tea leaf and the tea stems into one

red-brownish color.

The roasting process lowers the caffeine content,

but keep the antioxidant, catechin.

Houjicha has almost no bitterness,

so that you are there all day long,
