I have been wanting to try this tea for months. It has taken every ounce if willpower to not order it sooner. I love hojicha teas. And I think it’s a great base tea for flavors that go well with roastiness. And I love caramel. So I finally caved and ordered some.
I think they sent me the wrong tea. I hope anyway. This has zero caramel flavor. Even when I close my eyes and think only caramely thoughts, I get no caramel. There aren’t any caramel or almond chunks as seen in the picture either. Gotta be the wrong tea, right?
Or is this just bad? I mean its a good hojicha. But that’s not what I wanted. I wanted a buttery roasty hojicha with a little bit of burnt sugar flavor, or creamy caramel, I don’t really care which. Just something! Boo!
