I’m completely stunned at how gentle this hojicha is! It’s not smoky at all – the leaves smelled slightly green dry, toasty warmed and post steep. The taste of the tea reminds me of a seed mix I use for my oatmeal, and leaves a strong floral finish across the tongue! I’m really loving it, although it doesn’t have nearly the richness I look for in a hojicha. Kinda thinking about buying more to experiment with…

My first adventures in tea were unpleasant. After years of frowning at burnt/oversteeped teas, a chocolate tea my mother picked up in San Francisco changed everything.

Now I mostly drink Japanese greens and oolongs, while also trying to sip down a stash of flavored blends.
