little Glass pitcher method (grandpa style):

when i smell the leaves dry, they smell nice! roasted, toasty and crisp

when i smell the leaves wet, its the same as above but also has a aged smell to it (in a good way)

when i smell the brewed tea, it smells same as above but also has a coffee/espresso taste to it! :D

When i taste the brewed tea, it tastes like all of the above! :D

WHAT A WONDERFUL TEA!! :D Hojicha is my new #1 favorite Japanese tea!

many thanks to my wonderful friend Paola for this wonderful tea!

Flavors: Coffee, Espresso, Roasted, Toasty
