I had to try mixing hojicha with Earl Grey Cream after I saw an Adagio tasting note mixing them! (I’ve also heard of a cream hojicha, so I thought the Earl Grey CREAM would work better than a regular Earl Grey.) So I mixed one teaspoon of each and it is GOOD… probably not for everyone but this is good for me. I love the toastiness of the hojicha with the cream. The bergamot seemed a bit muted and this blend usually has a pretty strong bergamot taste. But I really liked this and I really need to think outside the box from now on with tea blending.

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!
