Hojicha is roasted green tea. Ryokucha -green tea- is usually made not only with a single origin tea leaf but it is made from going through the blending procedure where the best of the different tea leaves from different regions depending on the season are carefully selected. This is called "Gogumi" and is one of the most important jobs for tea makers. With over 100 years of experience, Kitada-Genshichi Shoten blended the tea to be exceptional not only for its flavor and fragrance but also the beautiful color of each blended tea. 

These are made into tea bags for you to enjoy easily.
