drank Hojicha by Adagio Teas
116 tasting notes

Roasty flavour reminds me of the roasted rice in genmaicha. Traditionally this should only be twigs; this pouch has broken Bancha leaves as well as twigs. I wouldn’t agree with Adagio’s review about this being coffee-like. Plus since it has fewer leaves, it should have less caffeine. The taste is definitely vegetal, probably because this version has leaves and it has a grain-like, malty taste. This is a dark version of green Genmaicha.
