This nice scent peculiar to this Roppongi is due to the fragrant ingredient with the relaxing effect of "pyrazine" which is born when adding heat to tea leaves. Hojicha contains this pyrazine abundantly.

このほうじ茶特有のいい香りは、お茶の葉に熱を加えたときに生まれる『ピラジン』というリラックス効果のある香り成分によるもの。ほうじ茶にはこのピラジンが豊富に含まれています。

Vendor Info

In 1892, Dobashien's founder Tetsugoro Dobashi established a small tea shop in a quiet residential district on the outskirts of Tokyo. As the city expanded, the area known as Akasaka-Mitsuke became one of the city's elite districts with ryotei, luxury Japanese restaurants, hosting meetings between powerful politicians. At these ryotei, only the best tea leaves from Shizuoka and other parts of Japan are served.
