It’s exciting to see Deb doing more flavored hojicha blends! Truth be told, I still haven’t tried the cinnamon raisin one that I have a packet of, but hojicha blends are so rare in general that I’m always excited to see them.
This last cuppa is actually much better than the previous ones. It’s probably because it’s the bottom of the packet, so maybe there was a higher ratio of cacao nibs and/or coconut. Whatever the cause, I’m actually tasting quite a bit of chocolate and coconut, where in previous cups I was mostly just getting hojicha. The chocolate tastes more like the milk variety, though perhaps it’s the coconut that pulls it in that direction. The hojicha is lightly roasty, which goes very well with the chocolate.
I won’t be reordering this one, just because the majority of the cups I had were mostly hojicha. That and it does steep up rather murky and oily, which is always a turn-off for me in tea… But I’m glad to have tried it!
