Den's Tea Houji-Kukicha Revisited


I first tried Den's Houji-Kukicha about a year ago and enjoyed it. Later I tried Hibiki's Houji Karigane but didn't care for it as much. Now I am giving Den's another try and I sill prefer it.

Its simplicity appeals to me. Add a heap of leave with some boiling water and lett it sit for a minute or two or three, whatever, and you have a cup of warm, roasted goodness. Nothing fancy but pleasurable.

If you are looking for a roasted kukicha, my advice is to go with Den's.

Hello, With kukicha I used to put the twigs into the bottom of a sauce pan and heat them lightly while turning the pan. A curry like aroma would come from the heated twigs. I would let the pan cool slightly and add water for steeping. Happy Easter, Hammock Man

Bret said...

Ever had Koyamaen,s Houjicha? Brilliant! A mix of sencha and kukicha with the most gorgeous flavor and aroma.

Jamus said...

I agree with you on the Houjicha Kukicha from Den's. I have two bags of it sitting in my cupboard that have been tempting me for the past couple of weeks. I've been on a roasted oolong kick lately so I think that roasted flavour is what is tempting me. I just need to work up the courage to reach all the way to the back of the cupboard and brew up a pot.

It offers an elegant roasted aroma and Umami taste from the stems. The taste is rather unique and will get your attention with the first sip.

Generic Viagra contains Sildenafil and it is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is the inability of the penis to become rigid, or stay firm long enough to complete the sexual act.Generic Viagra is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment. Generic Propecia is a one-a-day, FDA-approved, treatment for male pattern hair loss at the crown or in the middle of the scalp (androgenetic alopecia). Generic Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.Generic Cialis is consumed orally and has quickly become one of the most prescribed medications. Generic Levitra has been clinically proven to improve erectile function, even in men who had other health factors, like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes

These amazing health benefits can be yours for just drinking Tulsi Tea or Holy Basil Tea on a regular basis. Be sure to buy organic if you can. Your health food store will be a good source of help and information or otherwise you can do research on the internet and even have the tulsi tea shipped to your doorstep. It also comes in supplement form.

Tea just like any other kind but that is where any kind of comparison ends.
Oolong, Puerh and Sencha are essential types of tea much like Earl Grey and Darjeeling. However, Tava Tea is a much unparalleled blend of these three teas has always been recognised but this special blend of Tea contains a large number of nutrients.
