drank Hojicha by Adagio Teas
19 tasting notes

Not all Hojichas are created equal. Hojicha isn’t a commodity — there are real differences between brands. I gave Mighty Leaf’s Organic Hojicha a 93. I might have been more positively disposed toward Adagio’s Hojicha if I had never tried Mighty Leaf. As it is, I found Adagio’s comparatively dull, listless, almost stale tasting. I don’t mean to rip on Adagio — I love them, most of the time. Just not at Hojicha time.

Just curious—-what’s the proper pronunciation for this variety? Every time I see the spelling, my brain just automatically says “HA-cha-cha.” I’m sure that’s not right!

I’m thinking Hoe-Gee-cha… am I rigtht?

I don’t speak Japanese, but I would go with Cofftea’s take on it: Hoe-GEE-cha

Profile

Bio

Perpetual tea noob. There’s just too much to know and too many to try. So many teas, so little money! I have definite likes and dislikes. I survived a major heart attack in Feb 2009, so I avoid the higher-caffeinated brews. I’m the happiest married man in human history and a Christian by choice.

I started two websites in 2009 to be used as a fundraiser for churches, ministries, missionaries, and non-profit organizations ( www.ShopOnline2Give.com and www.ShopOnline4Charity.org ). Each organization supported by my sites has their own online shopping page with about 150 popular online stores. Select an organization from the left sidebar and visit their shopping page. I have several major online tea shops on each site (more on “2Give” than on “4Charity” right now). Click on a link, shop ’til you drop, and half the commission from each sale goes to the organization whose shopping page you linked from. The other 50% compensates the considerable time I spend on managing the site and supports my tea habit.

If your ministry or non-profit would like to be included on “ShopOnline” contact me ([email protected]) and we’ll see what we can do. Zero cost to participate. Free money. The more the merrier, the less the scarier.
