This isn’t my favorite. It’s a fine hojicha, but I’m not getting any apple or turnover. A bit of spice, but definitely no baked notes.

Few things scream fall more than apples do! The earthiness of Japanese hojicha marries with the natural, bright and crisp sweetness of fresh apples for a blend that is deliciously fabulous EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE! Enjoy hot with a spot of honey for a supremely relaxing cuppa that will make you feel like you’re standing in the middle of an apple orchard; have it cooled off and cold for a juicy and crazy-refreshing sip; or hit it with a spot of milk as a milk tea or latte for a sweet hojicha apple pastry-like yumminess like you’ve never tasted before.

This was neither overwhelming or underwhelming. Just kind of “whelming”, if you will. The hojicha is nice; it’s a pleasant light to medium roast with some brassy mineral notes to it in addition to that charred nuttiness. The apple is present, but a little flat – definitely tastes me of dehydrated apple slices than a more caramelized and rich “baked apple” flavour. I got a hint of the spice and a faint taste of maple. I think with some doctoring up I could make this into a very nice cuppa, but as is there are elements that just seem to be lacking some life.
