drank Hoji-cha by Yamamotoyama
1249 tasting notes

I saw ashmanra’s post of a hoji-cha and remembered I have this version. For the life of me I couldn’t recall what it tasted like. One sniff of the dry leaf and it all came back. To me its like genmaicha without the puffed rice. Toasted bancha leaf. Well really fannings as this is a very inexpensive bagged version. Still it was quite enjoyable this morning. Yamamotoyama does cheap well.

I looked back at my previous tasting note – it was the middle of the summer and I was all concerned because the mill was talking strike. Oh the simple days, when I had a job, and money. I do have tea and a wife that loves me. Who needs steak.

I enjoy this one, too. And it’s so cheap! :)

You have friends too!!! We all love you! I don’t have much money ever either, but having peace and knowing that even alone, God loves me… gives me great joy.

tea, tea friends…AND a wife who loves you? you’re ahead of the game and damn lucky! :) happy to share this neck of the woods with you.

Thanks! Reading back I sound more melancholy than I intended. I remain optimistic. My job searching has revealed to me I am far more disabled than I care to admit. I am now trying to find an attorney to help with the process. My nurse practitioner tried to convince me two years ago. I just didn’t want to hear it. I have never been one to let a challenge stop me. Now the challenge is learning to accept help when I need it. It really isn’t a pride thing with me, it is a determination thing. Never give up and never give in, except to God’s love.

Amen. Been reading about Solomon and all his worldly chattel recently. Scriptural proof that excess just drags you down :)

I feel sure I’ve seen that little gold and blue ha-cha-cha (I know that’s not how you pronounce it) box at Fox Farm. May need to investigate.

So true, if I may bud in. I am shop-a-holic and all the stuff I bring home from splurge and impulse; I don’t enjoy when I don’t see where to put them. Then I get the mail reminding me of all the money I owe. Sorry if not sticking to topic. Best!
