Traditional Houjicha green tea, organic and fair trade certified from China. Available looseleaf or in teabags. Delicious finish. Imported by Mountain Rose Organic Farm, What makes this organic tea so delectable is that the freshly picked tea leaves have their fermentation period shortened by slowly roasting the whole leaves to a warm brown color. This process yields a cup which produces a lovely amber color, smooth texture, and without the tannic sharpness of traditional green teas. Lovers of Oolong will especially enjoy Houjicha. Contains caffeine.
