We are excited to introduce our very first house roasted Houjicha -"Ryokan Roast". This Houjicha is made from 100% first flush Yabukita Sencha from Uji in Kyoto prefecture. Applying a medium roast brings out deep notes of cedar, dried flowers and a lingering nuttiness. This tea is evocative of the simple, rustic style of tea served to guests when arriving at traditional Ryokan hotel in Japan.

We are so excited to offer our first in an ongoing series of roast studies. It is our aim to not only offer wonderful in-house versions of a classic style of tea, but to also study, learn and share the art and science of tea roasting.

How de we describe house roasted houjicha?

warming + sharp

Our house roasted Houjicha is made from 100% Uji Sencha. We roast daily at our Brooklyn flagship. While not the most complex tea we sell, the simplicity of our house roasted Houjicha reminds us of the countryside ryokan hotels of Japan. Very comforting indeed.
