Roasting pan for making Houjicha 8.66 inch(22cm) x 4.72inch(12cm) x 3.14inch(8cm)

HORAKU is a pan for making Houjicha by roasting tea leaves. Houjicha is made by roasting tea leaves over heat. It is a brown tea with a toasted nutty flavor. Houjicha is ideal for those who would like to try Japanese tea for the first time. If you use this HORAKU, you can easily make Houjicha at home.

It is very easy to use. Simply put the tea leaves of your choice into the HORAKU and roast them over direct heat for one to two minutes while moving the HORAKU in small increments. Basically any tea leaves can be used, but we recommend Sencha Karigane, which does not burn easily. Also, tea leaves that have lost their flavor over time can be roasted to make them tasty again.

After a while, when the tea leaves are roasted, a nutty and very fragrant aroma wafts through the air. The aroma of green tea has various beneficial effects in daily life, such as relaxing, relieving fatigue, and so on. These aromatherapy effects are said to enhance the natural healing power of humans and bring mental stability.

This HORAKU is made of TOKONAME YAKI, a traditional Japanese pottery. The beautifully simple form of this HORAKU is extremely functional. The large, inwardly curved mouthpiece prevents the tea leaves from flying out when roasting and helps to ensure that the tea leaves are evenly roasted. Also, the handle is easy to hold and fits in any person's hand, and the inside is hollow so that roasted tea leaves can be poured from the opening.

With this HORAKU, you can make Houjicha to your own personal roasting preference, perfect for those who want to immerse themselves more deeply into the world of tea. Of course, the design and functions are easy for anyone to use, making it suitable for Japanese tea beginners or to give as a gift. It might be interesting to compare your own Houjicha with Hibiki-an’s.

Once you experience the joy of making Houjicha with this HORAKU, you will be addicted to it. With this roasting pan, you can enjoy not only the pleasure of tasting tea, but also the pleasure of creating your own special tea. At home, you can enjoy this HORAKU and make your green moment more wonderful.
