This one is quite intriguing. Thanks for sending a sample my way, getanzt! I don’t usually love hojicha, and this one smells as overly toasty as ever. However, the flavor is way fruitier. Apparently this is supposed to taste like Japanese pumpkin, which I’m not sure I’ve had before, but I could imagine this working. I also taste a burnt toasty flavor that I don’t love. I wish I could have the fruity pumpkin flavor without that burnt taste. I ended up sharing the mug with someone who didn’t like it either. Maybe a hojicha fan would enjoy this though.
