From Dobra Tea

A bold tea of fire-roasted tea stalks which give a taste and aroma unlike that of any other Japanese tea. The infusion is dark amber, the scents reminiscent of roasted grains or chestnuts. It is recommended after a substantial meal or in the depths of winter. Very low in caffeine.

What a treat in the cold depths of winter. I’ve come to realize that despite the appearances of a “twig tea” there are indeed different quality grades of Hojicha. I’ve had many a Hojicha that tasted burnt, watery, or old. I have to say, without any bias, that Dobra’s Hojicha is one of the best I’ve found. It’s a touch sweet, plenty roasted and mouth-filling, without any off-notes. I tend to get about 3 infusions from a pot at around 2 minutes apiece, which is respectable as well. I’m not always in the mood for it, certainly, but when I am it’s just the right body-warmer and mind-clearer.

I don’t know. I just don’t know. I need more time. I won’t give up this easily.
Must regroup and try different brewing…
