Brewing Houjicha

  • Houjicha or Houjicha Karigane (2cups)
    • Tea leaves: 3 tablespoons (7-8g)
    • Water temperature: boiling water
    • Amount of water: 200ml (7.04fl oz)
    • Waiting time: 15 - 30sec.
    Houjicha / Houjicha Karigane is only half the weight of Sencha tea leaves; it is 50% lighter. So, please put about two times (2x) the cubical content of tea leaves in the tea pot (Kyusu). To extract the excellent nutty and smooth aroma from Houjicha, please brew the tea leaves in boiling water for a short time.

    All Hibiki-an teas can be brewed three times with full flavor.
