Selected only the “Blue twigs” of the first flush tea twigs. Strong fire for deep roasted tasting notes, smoky aroma resembling a winter stove in a snow cabin. A Kaga-Boucha* masterpiece. Extremely hard to find – only while stocks last!
Origin: Ishikawa, Japan
Area Brand: Kaga-Boucha
Ingredients: 100% pure tea leaves. That's all.
The Blue Kaga-Bou Houjicha is a special Houjicha made from only the selected "blue twigs" of the first flush tea. These quality tea twigs are lavishly used to then deep roast to pull out the magnificent aroma of the tea.
Along with the "white", this is a tea which we tried to add into our shop last year yet wasn't able to as it quickly ran out of stock. This year we are fortunate to be able add them into our shop but in limited quantities. Please try while stocks last!
You can try the differences of all three types of Kaga-Boucha in this bundle.
Great mindfulness choice. Perfect tea for a healthy, relaxing moment and to relieve your stress.
* The innovation and invention of twig-based Houjicha originates in the Kaga area (where it is Ishikawa today), hence is called the Kaga-boucha.
