From Japanese tea house Jugetsudo, an autumnal hojicha for your fall pantry. A roasted green tea, hojicha has a toasted, nutty flavor similar to black tea. Notes of seasonal apples add a sweet taste to this caffeine-light treat. Make a cup for yourself before sleeping or brew a whole pot for the family; the beautiful cannister contains 40g of loose leaf tea.
How to brew: Boil water to 85 degrees celsius. Brew for 50 seconds. Serve immediately.
The Japanese tea shop Jugetsudo was founded in 1980 by Maruyama Nori, a nori (dried seaweed) merchant. The word jugetsudo can be understood as “the place from where one looks at the moon.” When we look at the moon, we become humble and truly appreciate its eternal beauty. The Jugetsudo tea house offers the bounty of nature through their high-quality tea. More than 160 years of tradition and experience pursuing the highest quality ingredients promise not just a wonderful cup of tea, but also an enjoyable fragrance and a comforting, warm feeling.
