Houjicha Shiso is a warming Japanese green tea perfect for the transition into colder months. A hot roasting step transforms the green tea through the Maillard reaction into light brown leaves that brew an amber-red infusion. The roast step also lowers the caffeine content of the tea leaves, making this tea an ideal after dinner cup. Red shiso has a spicy flavor and purply hue that complements the amber brew of the houjicha. Bamboo ginger, a highly aromatic variety of ginger, provides a warming heat to balance the other herbaceous botanicals. The blend is finished with peppermint leaves which bring an uplifting minty note.
