Light roast? I didn’t know houjicha came in various roasts! I also did a side by side taste with the Dark Roast.
Anyways – this tea is easy to drink. On the light side but full of flavor – brothy, roasty, a touch of smokey and lots of chestnutty sweetness. The 3rd steeping was the best as I got some chocolate notes! A pretty good, easy to drink tea. I thought this tea was pretty good until I had the Dark roast, lol!
For steeping, I followed Yunomis’ standard steeping instructions http://yunomi.us/713/standard-steeping-technique/
