drank Houjicha by Tsaa
415 tasting notes

1 tablespoon for 375 ml

On the sip, oceanic but with a slight lingering sweet note that reminds me of licorice or ginseng. Earthy/woodsy-ness that reminds me of chocolate. Hay-like qualities. Roasted tone. Hint of buttery-ness. Ginseng-like sweetness quality is accentuated as the tea cools.

Second infusion at 4 minutes. I’m detecting a bit of some black tea flavour qualities. There is still a hint of vegetal taste. The overall flavour reminds me of seaweed crisps.

Third infusion at 5 minutes. Still an enjoyable tea experience.
