Houjicha Karigane Super Premium is the perfect hot tea for winter and early spring. It's very hearty and warming. After I've been outside shoveling snow, all I want is a steaming hot cup of this tea. The blend of roasted stems and twigs from high quality Sencha and Matcha create an extremely rich and complex flavor like roasted grains, coffee, and black tea. You'll find deep earthy undertones of oak wood and autumn leaves and top notes of sweet brown sugar and green grass. Overall, it's a very complex tea, perfect for those who like to experiment with new flavors and styles of tea. If this is your first time to try Japanese green tea, I suggest Hibiki-an's Sencha. If you have never tried Houjicha, I suggest Hibiki-an's Houjicha (Bancha). But if you have been drinking tea for a while and want something really special and unique, I definitely suggest this tea, along with their Houjicha Super Premium.
