Karigane Houjicha ($8.50)

karigane Hojicha
Karigane Houjicha is lightly roasted Karigane Kukicha which is a kukicha made from Gyokuro, Japan's top grade of green tea. The result is a Houjicha with an exceptional taste and good umami. Compared to our refreshing regular Houjicha, Karigane Houjicha has the same roasted flavor and virtually no bitterness plus you will experience a deep after taste on your tongue and through your nose.
  • Origin: Asahina, Shizuoka
  • Harvest: First Flush
  • Cultivar: Yabukita
Tasting Profile:
Similar to Karigane, it has a good level of Umami but unlike Karigane, has a toasted vegetable flavor. Also unlike regular Houjicha, the flavor lingers for a while refreshing your mouth. It is Houjicha, but somewhat more elegant.
Den's Preferred Brewing:
Water: 4oz boiled
Leaves: 2 grams or 1 heaping teaspoon
Steep: 30 sec
2nd Cup: Water boiled; Steep 15 sec

For a cup of Iced Tea: Put 50% more tea leaves into a teapot. Steep as directed for hot tea. Once you brew it, put ice into the cup to lock in the aroma.
