Organic Yuzu Hojicha Blend (1.76 oz)
Hojicha Yuzu blend. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruits which has very distinct citrus scent combining hints of grapefruit and lemon. To match the toasty flavor of hojicha, we use ripe yuzu , which has more sweet with less sour taste. Also, Japanese black tea is added in this blend. Both Yuzu and black tea are grown in the same tea farm, Taruwaki-en as Hojicha under an organic environment. Japanese black tea has less astringency and mild sweetness than black tea from South Asia region. This blend has the perfect balance of the toasty flavor of hojicha, the gentle, soft sweetness of black tea, and the sweetness of fully-ripened yuzu with the pleasing aroma of citrus.
