I haven’t tasted very many hojichas, but this is lovely. It’s vegetal but distinctly toasty, which would be a perfect blend for a chilly winter morning, which, incidentally, I’m experiencing quite the opposite of. The liquor is quite a bright green upon first pouring the water, but it brews to a dark yellow. It reminded me a lot of a forest – dark and damp and full of vegetation, with a distinct sweetness and rich roasted flavour. Really nice.
