Making sure this wasn’t still in my cupboard(sipdown), I realized I hadn’t written a note yet. I don’t trust my flavor notes on this tea anyway, since it was from an ANCIENT teabox and in a flimsy sandwich bag. Just wanted to finish it, while also utilizing some vanilla creamer in the fridge. It’s good with creamer! Though probably not fresh enough to comment on anything else. i’m sure it was a good houjicha when it was fresh though!

I like the taste of houjicha paired with vanilla or chocolate!

Lupicia has a cinnamon and apricot flavored hojicha that I like called Hatsune. I wish there were more flavored hojichas out there.

Yes! Houjicha is a very underutilized base for flavoring.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
