Description | 詳細

Tsukigase Hōjicha – technically a roasted Bancha – consists of large roasted leaves as well as a significant amount of stem and twig material from the late spring and early autumn harvests of 2018. Brewed at high temperatures, they offer a naturally mild and uncomplicated, but at the same time highly aromatic, earthy, and sweet everyday tea with a distinct sense of warmth coming from the final roasting.

Due to the nature of the Bancha-material and the subsequent deep roasting, Tsukigase Hōjicha contains very low amounts of caffeine making it suitable to enjoy at any time of the day.
