Gyokuro Kukicha Houjicha

This month's roast club features a stunning shaded This houjicha is made from a very unique base—the stems of tea grown for gyokuro. While kukicha (stem tea) is ubiquitous in Japan, and a very common base for Houjicha, the stems are typically sourced from plants grown for sencha. The use of stems that undergo progressive shading prior to harvest results in a deepened umami and rich sweetness, which coupled with the intense aroma developed by the roasting process, yields an endlessly satisfying cup.
