This exciting houjicha is hand roasted by master potter Yoshiyuki Shimizu at his studio in Dosenbo on the border of Uji and Nara in western Japan. This tea is made from the non clonal Zairai strain. Grown from seed, Zairai contains a variety of genetic material meaning batch to batch variance is common which makes for an exciting and rewarding brew. Incredibly aromatic with a powerful mouthfeel, this Houjicha represents something brand new in our catalog. An artisan and hand crafted tea of the highest order.
