I’m having an abysmal day so am trying to keep the tea flowing. And I’m in the library at my language program, so I was limited to their teas for a little while (I brought my own to the library but already finished the tea I brought. Yikes.) Anyway, I typically dislike Hojicha but decided to give it another shot for the sake of trying one of the few Mighty Leaf teas I have left to try.
And I kinda like it. I really enjoy barley tea and this is like green meets barley. Very nutty, only slightly vegetal. I think the water the coffee shop gave me is a bit hot for this tea, so I was careful about the steep time.
In Japan, (cold) barley tea (mugicha) is a summer drink- so I feel happy drinking this in my Japanese language program because of its similar taste. Give it a try and see if you don’t feel refreshed and cleansed!
