This month, experience a wide variety of snacks made from organic matcha and hojicha produced by using traditional eco-friendly, tea farming and harvesting methods.
Matcha (抹茶) is derived from the same plant that produces green tea, but goes through different farming and processing methods where the tea leaves are grown in the shade then ground to a fine powder.
Hojicha (ほうじ茶) is cultivated in the same way as regular green teas but the leaves are pan roasted at extremely high temperatures then immediately cooled. The roasting process gives Hojicha its brown color, reduced caffeine content, and savory light flavor.
Below are just some of the snacks that will be in the November'19 "Teas of Japan" Snakku Box!
