Sipdown! (1 | 490)

First sipdown of December! Those rascally advents have been keeping me busy… But I would like to get to 500 by the end of the year, so I need to sneak in some more!

This was the lone survivor from the 3 Leaf hojicha sampler I bought a while back. Whizzed it up tonight with some cold oat milk and a glug of maple syrup, and it’s scrumptious. Roasty, nutty, hint of grassiness on the back of the palate. Little bit of smokiness as well. So rich and creamy with the oat milk. The texture is good but not perfect, there is a slight grittiness to it, but not enough to be very distracting for me. I used one teaspoon of powder for 16 ounces of cold oat milk, and it’s lovely.

I don’t think I’ll be ordering this, just because I don’t tend to drink powdered teas often lately. Poor matcha, languishing in a drawer… Plus I have a pouch of the banana version of this, which is plenty for now. :)

Good luck on getting to 500 sipdowns! That is quite an accomplishment. I’m trying to squeak 4 more sipdowns in by the end of the year…

Very, very excited to explore the Hojicha powders from 3 Leaf Tea because relative to the rest of their offerings it’s something very new to their site. Plus, I really can’t think of any other companies selling flavoured hojicha powder so the innovation there just gets me hella excited!!

On one level, I was incredibly impressed by this straight hojicha powder and on another I found myself disappointed. The disappointing part was, thankfully, the element that I don’t care about quite as much – the texture. I could feel, as I was drinking this, the slight grit of the powder on my palate from the much more course grind and I was a little sad to see that 3 Leaf Tea hadn’t really gone for a fine, fine grind like the rest of their matcha.

On the flip side, the taste was exceptional! Medium to deep roast with a natural sweetness – the taste gave me Cracker Jack vibes in the most excellent way. Buttery caramel corn and toffee and golden toasted peanuts! Really delicious and I can only imagine how cozy and tasty this would be done up in a latte. It also made me both excited and curious to see how this base would work with the few flavoured hojichas that they carry…
