About Koetsu Houjicha | 香悦ほうじ茶

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. Koetsu Houjicha is the diamond in the crown of Ryuouen's houjicha offering. The soft and gentle roast is evidenced by the still greenish hue of the stems. Made from select Uji grown shaded karigane, Koetsu offers deep aromatics and incredibly refined and lasting umami.

What is so special about this tea? This 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 5 times over the course of 2 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: A singular and special tea meant to be savored on its own.
