Houjhicha is made from quality bancha leaf which has undergone a careful oven roasting . Reputedly the concept of roasting green leaves was invented in 1920 by a Kyoto merchant who had a surplus stock of old green leaves and did not wish to waste them. It is a bright and aromatic tea and due to the  roasting  has a mild, smooth and slightly biscuity aroma and flavour.
