The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
Okay, take houjicha and genmai… and you got Hifumi.
I won’t lie, I took this tea rather for it’s outer wrapping, but this profile souned good in early autumn afternoon. It was sunny, no cloud in sight, but it is getting colder and dark fast!
The flavour, for this unknown old, tea bag, is a bit vague. The houjicha is indeed giving roasted note, but in my opinion quite weakly and not much of toasted rice is present as well.
Sadly, all the flavours were a bit weak. That is the biggest dismal about this tea, but maybe I just needed to steep it long, though I have steeped it for recommended 2 minutes only.
