Many Houjicha’s I have tried seem to taste and smell quite similar. This one from Obubu smells like you think it would but I have to say the flavor is much different but in a VERY good way!
This Houjicha is very sweet! Almost juicy, even! There is an incredible smoothness to it too! Near creamy! It also reminds me of spring and summer -a very natural and beautiful flavor. I like this very much and am enjoying it as I type this!
This was an amazing surprise!
