From Yuuki-cha

An excellent organic hojicha from Gokase Town in Miyazaki which is made from a selection of pan-fired ichibancha (first flush) stems and leaves that are lightly roasted in order to achieve a hojicha of exceptionally fine quality with outstanding aroma and the smoothest sweet-roast nectar!

The fine aromas of this hojicha come from a combination of pan-firing and complex roasting of the leaves. This combination produces aroma that is quite different from steamed tea leaves that have been roasted into hojicha, and to us, also superior. The aroma offered is more refreshing, more stimulating, even a little flowery, without any excessive smokiness or roastiness.

On the palate this tea is a complete purist’s delight, it is as smooth as you like, and offers a bouquet of wonderful stimulating sweet-roast flavors with a touch of greenness in the mix! If you are somebody who knows hojicha well, or you consider yourself a connoisseur of Japanese green tea in general, you will not fail to spot the outstanding craftsmanship of this organic hojicha, and you will surely want to give it a try!

Very nice, balanced hojicha. Nice unity of subtly-roasted and fresh aromas. One hour ago I drank this hojicha: https://steepster.com/teas/lima/82328-roasted-bancha , and this one is just so much better. The roast in this one fits perfectly with the tea itself and there is a nice, pleasantly-astringent mouthfeel that adds to the body of this tea. Hoping to order this one again in next year’s shincha order.

I’m still playing around with steeping times and dry leaf amount for hojichas. This one I made ‘western’ style.

This one is quite stemmy: looks to be about 60-40 stem to leaf ratio.
pleasant roasted aromas of seaweed, nuts and grains. the seaweed and grainy aspect standing out more than the nuttiness.

very smooth medium bodied and more roasted grain when tasting
