From the village of Wazuka, tea farmer Uejima-san presents a hojicha roasted green tea made from a tea field in the mountains surrounding the village. This tea field has not seen the use of pesticides in 15 years, and Uejima-san roasts the leaf using a small-scale tea leaf roaster (Morita-style from the Morita Metalworks Factory) that uses a spinning metal barrel to ensure even roasting.

I'd never had hojicha before buying this. It has a very nice aroma, good brewed as recommended or cold brewed over several hours.
