Houjicha Japanese Tea #1434
Hōjicha (ほうじ茶) is a famous Japanese green tea that is distinctive from other Japanese green teas because it is made from stalks leftover from ordinary shallow steamed sencha, so there are only stalks and no leaf flesh. The tea is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed. The tea is fired at a high temperature, altering the leaf color tints from green to reddish-brown. The process was first performed in Kyoto, Japan, in the 1920s and its popularity persists today.
