I love Hojicha and I love Genmai Cha, so I thought I’d really enjoy this. And I did, but not as much as I’d hoped. It could have been that it was 12am and I’d had way too much to drink at a party or that I was beat tired trying to watch a less than stellar SNL, but either way, it was only so so. It had a nice butteriness to it, but was missing the slight salty roasty flavor I love in my Hojicha. I’ll try it again before rating it. Maybe with a little less prefunking.
