I like this one. Of course, I adore hojicha, so I’m not that surprised. It sort of tastes like if you made cinnamon toast with cinnamon raisin bread. The hojicha adds a nice “burnt crispy edges” sort of note to it. And I do taste the raisiny notes as well, along with plenty of cinnamon.
My only slight complaint would be, it’s almost a bit too sweet? Not overwhelmingly so, but as someone who doesn’t sweeten her tea, I think I would like it more with slightly less sugar. It also has a somewhat thin mouthfeel, but I find that fairly normal for hojicha.
I think I’ll probably still reorder it at some point, just because it’s just a unique flavor profile and it really captures the flavor of cinnamon raisin bread.
