7848 Tasting Notes
Tea from a friend. I really just wanted to try this before passing it on to another friend i know will appreciate it more. This isn’t overly roasted….obviously it has that similar hojicha taste to it, but it’s light and doesn’t have that heavy feeling that a lot of hojichas do for me. there’s a bit of sweetness to this as well, though i don’t get that familiar “green” taste coming through. not too shabby!
farewell my delicious friend. While i haven’t had time to really write about the things i’m drinking, i am making a conscious effort to make note when something leaves my cupboard or it’s a brand new tea that i’m trying. I think this officially means i have no verdant teas in my cupboard beyond a couple puerhs. eep!
i don’t get it. Lol. Pulled this one out today from omgsrsly to try. After a number of steeps and different temps and times, i just don’t get it. Tastes like not very much of anything to me. I’m hoping that maybe next time i pull this out i’ll be able to figure it out, though if i can’t…well there’s more for everyone else, since i know most folks have really loved this.
a friend picked this up, loved it for the caffeine rush then decided he didn’t like it after all so i ended up with it lol. I’ve had this before, but my tasting note was shit and i’m not sure why. I suspect my taste buds have changed because this is WAAAAY too earthy/licking a forest mud floor, for me. I ended up pouring out a few steepings, just to see if later steeps would cut it…nope. This is no longer a tea for me…just too….consistent in it’s flavour profile, which isn’t up my alley anymore to begin with? :)
