Kagoshima Organic Houjicha (Roasted Bancha) - 2022 1st Harvest
Origin: Kagoshima Prefecture.
Cultivar: Yabukita
The roasting process produces a very savory and smoky aroma and a slightly sweet flavor reminiscent of sweet potatoes or apricots, in a deep chestnut brown liquor. Very low astringency, caffeine, and tannin levels make this a smooth and mellow tea that can be enjoyed anytime by tea drinkers of all ages.
