Product Description

Details

Our Japan Hojicha is made by roasting Bancha leaves. Bancha is derived from the lower leaves on the plant, which tend to have lower caffeine levels. The roasting turns its leaves to a chocolatey brown and reduces the amount of caffeine further, making it ideal to drink in the evening and after meals. The flavor is buttery, smooth, toasty and slightly smoky.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 170°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1-3

Japan Gyokuro "Jade Dew" Green Tea

Gyokuro is the pinnacle of Japanese loose leaf green tea. During the annual spring harvest leaves are shaded for around 20 days to increase the potency of the plant. While shaded, the plant continues to produce chlorophyll, but the natural cycle of the sunlight bleaching the leaves is inhibited. The plant also pulls more nutrients from the soil as it is not able to convert the sunshine into energy for itself. The harvest consists of the collection of just the top 3 leaves, which are quickly cut and steamed. The flavor is richly creamy, sweet, and oceanic.

Steep Time: 1-2 min
Water Temp: 140°-170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 3
