Japanese Roasted Pea Plant
Flavor Notes - Nutty, Smoky, Sweet
Zaracha is a traditional Japanese tea made from a leguminous plant called, Kawaraketsumei. The plant is cut at the foot, dried, and roasted. All the parts are used - stem, leaves, flowers and pods. Zaracha has been consumed since the Edo period, particularly in the region of Iwami. It's consumed at all times of day from morning to evening, and often with meals. The name Zaracha comes from the informal phrase "zara-zara" which means rough in Japanese, referring to the mineral character of the tea's taste. Sweet and slightly smoky, the flavor is reminiscent of Hojicha. 16-18 servings in 1oz Rice Paper Package.
