I liked this tea—so far it’s my favorite among the Greens I’ve tried which tend to be either too smokey (Gunpowder) or too vegetal (Dragonwell or Sencha) for my tastes. This one had a nutty, warm taste to me. When I ran out I tried another Hojicha, this time from TeaSource. I found I prefer the one from Adagio. TeaSource’s has an earthier, maltier taste and I prefer Adagio’s mellower taste.
