From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
Hojicha Isagawa Organic
A well balanced blend of leaves and stems roasted to its characteristic ochre colour.
Its crystal clear, brick-red liquor is smooth and silky, giving generous and comforting aromas of hardwood, toasted cereals and hazelnuts.
Among the classics of Japan, this everyday tea is often offered after a meal.
