Shirakawa-cha Premium Houji-cha is made by roasting rough Sencha leaves over high flame.

In general, hojicha is made by roasting Bancha (off-specification, low-grade or harvested after summer) or Kukicha (low-grade tea leaves with stem).

But Shirakawa-cha premium hojicha is made from only the first and second green tea leaves which were harvested before summer in Shirakawa Town.

As a result, the tea leaves are mainly of good quality and have a deep aroma and rich flavor, and color is a warm blown color.

It’s popular with children and the elderly, as it has less caffeine than regular green tea.

 

50g /1.8oz tea leaf = 10-13 times.

100g / 3.5oz tea leaf = 20-25 times.
