drank Hojicha by Adagio Teas
23 tasting notes

This is my first taste of Hojicha tea, so I followed the recommended steeping instructions (2 teaspoons in 16oz of water for 3 minutes). The liquor of the leaves is a brown, with a few hints of orange. Darker than the other green teas that I’ve had. The aroma isn’t so appealing to my nose. It smells like a bunch of burnt leaves and twigs honestly. I guess thats to be expected since they are roasted leaves. The taste is alright, but pretty bland with a hint of smokiness. Every time I take another sip it tastes more and more like twigs ( based off my assumption of what twigs taste like =P ). Not bad, but not too good either.
