Houjicha is made by roasting ryokucha (green tea) over strong heat over a short period of time burning the leaves to a degree and imparting the roasted flavor. Because the ambient environment (temperature and humidity) affects the original green tea leaves depending on the leaf size and shape, the amount of stems still mixed into the leaves, there is a high level of skill involved with roasting the leaf evenly.

this hojicha utilizes summer harvested leaf that has grown larger than spring sencha. This results in a balanced earthy flavor whereas spring sencha would have stronger notes of caramel and autumn harvested leaf grown even larger would taste even more earthy
