A jelly treat with a noticeable caramel-like taste of houjicha that is not overly sweet!

Houjicha is made by first steaming then roasting green tea leavesin aporcelain pot over charcoalat 200°C,resulting in a teawith a nutty, roasted flavor.The leaves have a distinct earthy color andthe tea is less bitter compared to other green teas.

Here it’s used to flavor kanten, a firm, jelly-like wagashi (traditional Japanese sweet) made from seaweed. Kanten has no flavor and is the perfect base to highlight the different ingredients it’s combined with. 

To make this Houjicha Kanten Jelly, Natural Attorait uses organic green tea from Wazuka Town in Uji, Kyoto. Their organic green tea meets the rigorous and strict organic requirements set forth by JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards) to produce a higher quality tea leaf with a deep flavor you will savor.

Suggested use:Enjoy as is. Best served cold. Pairs well with a cup of sencha (available in our Japanese Green & Specialty Teas: “Ryu” Care Package and as a single item purchase at our Market: Michi no Eki).
