Steepster tantrum backlog
Heather kindly passed down her last bag of this. Thanks a bunch! I love hojicha so I’m always up for trying more.
This is one of the toastiest teas I’ve ever smelled. So roasted that it’s like how coffee beans go a little bitter when they’re super roasted. Or even some roasted matés.
But that said, caramel is the perfect flavour to pair up with hojicha. It beats downing a sugar-laden caramel latte at a coffee shop.
The caramel comes a little more out of hiding as this cools.
