I received this tea in one of my Mystery Tea Sampler’s Club envelopes. I love this club … every month I would get an envelope with three tea samples to try, and all the teas that I’ve tried thus far from Yunomi have been wonderful. Unfortunately, my subscription ended, hopefully, I will be able to renew the subscription as a christmas gift that my husband doesn’t know that he’s getting me. :)

A delicious roasty-toasty flavor, although as the name suggests, it’s a bit lighter than in a darker roasted Houjicha. Sweet and mild, with a barely noticeable astringency. A really nice cuppa.

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/07/29/yunomi-monthly-mystery-tea-samplers-club-light-roast-houjicha-from-kyoto-obubu-tea-plantation/

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
