About Jou Yanagi Houjicha | 上柳ほうじ茶

Description: Description: This houjicha was roasted exclusively by Ryuouen - one of Japan's oldest and most respected tea sellers. We are honored to be entrusted as Ryuouen's sole reseller outside of Japan. This Houjicha is a classic: Uji bancha is drum roasted until reaching a deep brown, almost black hue. Incredibly fragrant and easy drinking, this is the perfect cup to unwind with and an especially wonderful accompaniment to

What is so special about this tea? Yanagi Houjicha is the labor of an obsession: both from Ryuouen and their obsessive commitment to quality, and from Kettl in our obsession to convince them to allow us to sell. We visited with Ryuouen five times over the course of two years and slowly gained their trust and were rewarded with the responsibility to share their products with a wider audience. You'll notice this tea comes in the original Ryuouen packaging - a sign of respect to their makers and a badge of honor for us.

Recommended for: We love this for unwinding after a meal with friends. Low caffeine and a gentle sweetness make this the perfect accompaniment for a meal as well.
