From DAVIDsTEA

Delve into Japanese tradition with Hojicha green tea. Rich with notes of toasted bread and roasted nuts, our organic blend is as crisp and light as it is deliciously cozy. This tea is equally approachable if it’s your first time trying Hojicha, or if you’re a seasoned drinker.

What makes it great:

Directly from Japan
This Hojicha is mellow enough for first-timers & true to taste for diehard fans

Cozy & crisp, this is definitely a daily-drinking kind of tea

Unctuous texture with a rich umami flavour

Organic green tea from Japan.

It’s about time to make the hour drive into the office. I really rely on the cuppa during that drive. I’ve been brewing this one every Tuesday for a few Tuesdays, for the tea is warming and inviting. I dig adding foamed oat milk to the tea since it really enhances the nuttiness in the tea. I feel a bit sad that this is gone, since it has been tradition to sip for the drive…Thankfully, like the majority of tea heads, I’ve more tea to choose for the upcoming office days :)

I waaaaay oversteeped this… but it tastes amazing. And also heavily, heavily reminds me of milk tea; is this what they use in roasted green milk tea?

it’s nutty and sweet and toasty and smooth. Not overly nuanced in my opinion, but really pleasant to drink. I’ll need to latte this.

It is what is used in roasted green milk tea! :)

Ahaha, you would know! Now I’m inspired to make my own milk tea!

Gongfu – in my little hojicha dedicated yixing teapot!

Sipping liquid gold this afternoon! This is the hojicha from the recent “Garden to Cup” Winter subscription; it’s a nice medium roast with particularly sweet and golden nutty notes of pecan and hazelnut with a more red fruit and nori undertone and a silky cocoa butter finish! Despite not being a big green tea drinker, I have a deep love for Hojicha and I was particularly excited to see the inclusion of one in our first Garden to Cup sub box. It’s warm, toasty comfort on this rainy Saturday!

Aside from gongfu it also makes an excellent cozy Western style mug of tea. Steep hot and quick for more roast and low and slow for a bit more of the nori/oceanic greener notes. Solid hojicha latte, also!

My personal wish is that we see this delightful straight tea extend past the subscription box and make an appearance in the main assortment; and it would be a dream to have a core straight hojicha in the line up. I also just in general want to see more blends that incorporate hojicha in them; it’s a delightful base and could really diversify the green tea assortment.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

Agreed, I think this should stick around, and there should be more hojicha blends! When I was searching for this, I discovered that “Hojicha Cream” was a tea DT once carried – it sounded delicious and I’d love to see it back!
