Houjicha with Ginger
The combination of houjicha and ginger produces a tea that is spicy yet soothing to drink anytime of the year.
When ginger is dried gingerol (a chemical compound) changes to shogoal. Shogoal, which has a similar chemical structure to gingerol is studied to possess a greater effect in warming the body than the latter. We thus decided to dry the ginger to maximise the nutritional benefits of this plant.
Our ginger is sourced directly from Kagoshima Prefecture.
