About Hana Houjicha | 花ほうじ茶

Description: Hana Houjicha is truly one of our most captivating and eccentric teas. This green tea is withered prior to roasting allowing essential oils and plant alcohols to oxidize creating a rich, floral aroma. The light roast helps maintain the freshness of the tea and adds a notable complexity. Sharing characteristics of Sencha, Houjicha and Oolong Hana Houjicha is truly one of a kind.

What is so special about this tea? This Houjicha comes from the "lab" of one of our most trusted tea makers and represents his relentless pursuit of creativity. This very left of center offering has a personality not often found in Japanese tea and furthers the current trend of using controlled withering to temper the grassiness of Japanese green tea while bring out a unique floral aroma. This is a very small lot and gives us confidence that the landscape of Japanese tea is flourishing. We are so excited to find a new audience for this audacious producers offerings.

Recommended for: Lovers of floral oolongs, Sayama style Senchas and light roast houjichas.

Delicious - wish it were still in stock!

Surprising and playful houjicha, with fresh bright green and traditional roasted flavors mingling (balance dependent on steeping method).

Potent and intoxicating

First thing that strikes about this tea is the wonderful aroma. It's indescribable. I've enjoyed many cups of houjicha and while I usually expect a mellow nutty sweet aroma, this one is certainly more floral and unique on its own. In terms of taste, it is deserving of the hana moniker. The flavor really overtakes upon initial sip. Haven't been surprised by a tea in awhile and this one was quite a pleasant surprise.
