This is the first time I’ve had Hoji-cha. It is rather fascinating to me in that I can taste the seaweed saltiness of the Japanese green tea and yet it also delivers a toasted dark flavor. So now it is this slightly charred seaweed flavor lingering on my mouth. Slightly burnt popcorn is something I am getting as well.
I’m sure none of these descriptors are making people’s ears perk up. Having no other stick to measure this with, I feel like it is a decent tea especially considering the low price. I really went back and forth on if I liked this or not but after my second cup, I think I’m coming around to appreciating it.
