It's official. I've been converted to Houjicha. A drink more godly than coffee, houjicha's earthy flavor, amber hue, and intoxicating aroma instills a feeling of ikoi (rest/relaxation). This would be a great gift for any occasion, from birthdays to even Chrismas!
After years of drinking black tea I decided to switch to green tea. I tried several other brands until I found Matchalo's Houjicha tea and I can't believe how amazing it is. It has all of the benefits of green tea and the dark color and rich flavor starts out my day every morning now. I just love it!!
You can really tell the difference between this tea and “tea bag” tea. This Houjicha is amazing! You really feel like you are drinking a good, health cup of tea! Quick shipping!
