Kukicha, twig tea, and Houjicha, roasted tea, are found only in Japan and are a rare type of tea in the world of green tea. Consequently Roasted Kukicha is an even more unique tea.
Den’s Tea carries 2 roasted Kukichas.
- Houji Kukicha – We start with kukicha made from Sencha and process it with a deep roasting. Houji-Kukicha infuses into an earthy-brown liquor and offers an elegant roasted aroma and flavor.
- Karigane Houjicha - Lightly roasted Karigane Kukicha is a kukicha made from Gyokuro. The result is a Houjicha with an exceptional taste and good umami plus you will experience a deep after taste on your tongue and up through your nose.
