Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese blend of green tea leaves and grilled rice. Its humble origins stretch far back into Japanese history.
Hojicha Cypress Organic
An exciting pairing of tea and herbal infusion, this well-known Japanese tea (roasted green tea) blends its flavours with those of a beneficial coniferous. A collaborative project, with interesting social and environmental aspects, that our producer and a local forestry company in Japan have developed.
As the water touches the leaves, the comforting forest scents are expressed. The resinous aromatics of the cypress combine perfectly with the roasted nut and cereal aromas of the Hojicha.
An essential experience for lovers of boreal flavours.

This Kukicha style tea was created following the old Japanese tradition where stems and stalks from late bush harvests are roasted in preparation for winter. Its taste is exceptionally sweet, with notes of hazelnuts, brown sugar and roasted pecans. Kukicha tea also has the advantage of being naturally low in caffeine.
Rose and chamomile harmonize their aromatics with a zesty lemongrass finish. This herbal infusion exudes a heady and dreamy fragrance. Sweet, seductive and well balanced.
