Houjicha is a Japanese tea, made by roasting green tea leaves. The color of the loose tea is brown and has a warm characteristic and a roasted aroma.
Ingredients (serves 2):
Fill Zojirushi water boiler & warmer with water and set temperature to 208°F.
Place Houjicha tea leaves into the teapot.
When the water temperature reaches 208°F, dispense 12 fl. oz. of the hot water into the teapot. Allow the tea to brew for 20 to 30 seconds.
Pour tea into each teacup alternately so that the strength of the taste is equal for every cup. Serve as is.
Tea leaves can be used up to twice. For the second infusion, pour into cups immediately without any brew time.
