Despite its dark and enchanting amber infusion, Houjicha remains a green tea at heart.
Derived from the traditional Bancha Japanese green tea, it undergoes an additional roasting process that imparts a velvety, chocolate-like smoothness, along with reduced caffeine levels, allowing it to be savored even during the evening hours.
For coffee enthusiasts, an added delight awaits in the form of savory coffee bean undertones that grace the tea's finish.
