ZENJIRO's recommended Hojicha.
Cultivated in Japan's highest altitude tea plantations, farmers have maintained their traditions for 600 years, even under difficult conditions on steep slopes. This high-quality tea leaf from Mino Shirakawa, which is produced in small quantities, is carefully made into hojicha.
- The astringent ingredient catechin, which is contained in green tea, and the aroma ingredient pyrazine, which is produced by roasting high-quality tea leaves, have a good balance, and are characterized by a mild aroma.
- The reason why ZENJIRO Hojicha is special is because it is the highest altitude tea plantation in Japan. Tea leaves grow in the best soils, the temperature difference during the day accumulates theanine in the tea leaves, and the fog moderately blocks sunlight to maintain the best balance of catechins.
- Brew hojicha tea leaves of 1 teaspoon (about 2g) s in 200ml boiled waters. Cold water brewing with ice water is available. It will take much longer, but it will be more mild. Good pair with milk and chocolate/caramel sauce.
- For storage, close the pouch with a zipper and keep it in a cool place. A pouch bag with a 5-layer structure made in Japan, which is ideal for preventing oxidation, is used for the package. The package is a convenient stand-type bag.
Tea leaves that have been certified as Gifu Clean Agriculture and are grown without using pesticides during the cultivation period.
For Japanese tea, oxidation is a risk and the taste changes. After opening, fold the opened part of the aluminum tea bag to remove air sufficiently, and then stop it with rubber or a stopper. It can prevent oxidation rather than transferring it to a can.
“ZENJIRO” is a Japanese brand that earnestly contributes to the physical and mental health and beauty of people around the world through Japanese natural tea leaves.
