Imagine if sencha and hōjicha got together and had a baby--well, that would look a lot like Ao Hōjicha! 

Made by roasting premium tamaryokucha a bit longer than usual, its flavour is a balance of the factors between sencha and hōjicha. You get the green and refreshing flavours from sencha, but with a roasted finish like hōjicha.
