Introducing JAS certified organic "hojicha" roasted green tea powder from Shizuoka prefecture. Each pack contains 30g, or about 30 servings. Hojicha is Japanese green tea that has been roasted, giving it a distinct reddish-brown color and toasty, caramelized flavor. Crafted from tea leaves nurtured with pure water and human care in the pristine mountain air of Shizuoka, this hojicha powder is derived from all-natural tea plants cultivated without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
Organic-certified teas account for only 3% of total tea production, and this product takes it a step further as only the best tea leaves are hand-selected. The meticulous attention to detail ensures a consistent, premium green tea. Japanese green tea is renowned for its diverse array of nutrients, including catechins with antioxidant properties, potassium, and dietary fiber supporting digestive health, theanine recognized for its calming and focus-boosting effects, along with vitamin C and minerals. Unlike hot water extraction, which captures only around 30% of the nutritional essence from tea leaves, this powder is crafted in a way that enables a complete intake of these beneficial elements.
Hojicha has a toasty, nutty flavor with a caramelized sweetness. The roasting process reduces the tea's astringency, resulting in a milder taste compared to other green teas. Pyrazine, an aromatic ingredient produced in the process of heating tea leaves, is said to promote blood circulation and relax the brain, and is recommended when you need to take a breather. All you need is hot or cold water and a cup, no need for a teapot. Suitable for home use and convenient for on-the-go, whether at work, school, or during outdoor activities like camping.

The tea leaves for this product were grown in a beautiful tea plantation located in the mountains at an altitude of 600 meters in Shizuoka Prefecture. The environment with short hours of sunlight and large temperature differences between morning and evening temperatures produces tea leaves with a rich flavor and aroma. The small family farmers who grew these tea leaves have been growing tea naturally on this land for over 30 years. The whole family handpicks the tea leaves so as not to damage the carefully nurtured, high-quality leaves.
