Houji-Cha Tea is a green tea with hardly any bitterness in its taste.
It is an inexpensive tea and very common, yet it is light, refreshing, and aromatic.
To make it, tea leaves are steamed, dried, then pan-roasted at a high temperature. The leaf colour changes from green to red.
The more it is roasted, the deeper the taste.
Add boiling water, let steep for 20 seconds, serve.
