Tea Story

This wonderful loose leaf green tea is carefully produced by gently roasting the leaves over an intensely high heat. Traditionally left for longer, after the first and second flush, the maturity of the leaves offer a wonderful reddish-brown infusion, which gives way to the most refreshing taste and a deeply rich, nutty aroma.

Imparting an exceptional, caramel flavour, whilst still retaining the creamy undertones making this green tea so special.

Houjicha has less astringency and caffeine, making it the perfect, relaxing after-dinner drink.

Ingredients: Roasted Japanese green tea

Uniquely great tea
Saturday, 17 August 2019  |  Jol-Maurice

Similar in taste to the japanese genmaicha, but smokier and earthier. Definitely an unusual but uniquely great tea.

I'm not a green tea fan, but the description intrigued me, so I ordered the taster pack, and I'm so glad I did! It is so different to anything else I've tried and I love it. The description is spot on and I'd definitely order this again.

The recipient of the gift was very pleased

With no real knowledge of green teas the descriptions on the site were helpful. The recipient of the gift was very pleased with the caddies and when opened stated "oh these are quite full!" which was obviously pleasing for me! The three flavours I purchased were all appreciated.

not as described
Sunday, 4 November 2018  |  Lidija

I just tried the tea and it's awful. The color is brown as if it's black tea , description says COLOUR
Light orange and I could not find any Caramel flavour with creamy undertones, the tea has bitter taste. It might have been confused with another sort of tea on a packaging step. Waste of money.
