thank you Amanda for including this one in your envelope of tea samples sale! I immediately wanted to try this one because it is a hojicha and just look at that picture for this tea! I don’t think I’ve ever had a coconut banana creme pie before, but it looks good. I THINK this is the only 52 Teas that is made from a hojicha base. I had my first hojicha a couple months ago and I was automatically hooked. I love the toasty flavor and I much prefer the roasted green tea over the usual green tea. This one is GOOD. I had a big chunk of banana in my infuser and after steeping, it looks like a ripe banana is sitting in there. Many nice coconut chunks too. I think hojicha just lends itself to a bakey dessert flavor. I love that the banana and coconut flavors are pretty evenly matched, much like the picture of that pie. I do wish there were a bit more flavor, but I’m very happy with this one! Because this is a hojicha, it is worth it to me! The second steep had just as much flavor, but that’s because I stoked it. Why aren’t there more 52 teas hojichas? Hmm.. Also, what is with all the coconut teas I’ve been drinking lately?

Sounds awesome. I’ve never heard of Hojicha before and will have to try it, not only because you made it sound good, but because it’s a fun sounding word.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
