This roasty-toasty oolong reminds me a great deal of Hojicha. With hints of floral notes such as lilac in the aroma and flavors reminiscent of roasted leeks or bok choy in the brewed broth I’d say this tea is worth the $25.99 for 4oz.

The tightly rolled balls have some stems in, with leaves approaching an interested redish or purplish hue depending upon the light.

I would easily rate this an everyday tea if it weren’t for the price.

Fans of Hojicha will find this very enjoyable and a nice break from their usual palate pleaser.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
