Morimoto teas are well known & loved among the organic Japanese tea connoiseurs.
Big leaves & stalks from the summer harvest are roasted gently to create this unique Houjicha. Morimoto Houjicha combines fine shades of roasting flavour with the somewhat rough taste of vibrant green tea. During the roasting process, the smaller stalks absorb some of the heat which allows the tea leaves to stay green, they are only slightly roasted.
This is an interesting houjicha with a touch of caramel flavour. It isn't as strong as other houjicha teas in the market. And it is low in caffeine not only because it contains stalks but also due to the fact that it has been roasted.
The Japanese Tea Evangelist says: I got caught by surprise with this houjicha since it looks lighter than others I have had before. It smells nice & fragrant, its liquor is dark brown. Its flavour is interesting since it has caramel notes but it also has a green note which creates a pleasant contrast. Definitely great & affordable low caffeine tea that can be consumed everyday.
