TTB. I love hojicha, and feel like it’s so under-utilized in flavored blends. The idea of a vanilla pear hojicha sounded absolutely mouthwatering. This is an absolutely lovely hojicha- roast and comforting. The vanilla is very subtle, and I’m not picking up on any pear.

I love houjicha too (and Japanese greens in general). I don’t think I’ve ever been that impressed with flavored ones though, which is a shame. I was considering trying this one when I ordered from Dammann, so I’m happy to see a tasting note about it hah!

This is from last week, but I forgot to write a tasting note.

I enjoy houjicha a lot, but I’m not always in the mood for it. The other day was a cloudy and rainy autumn day [stupid changing seasons >:( ] and I wanted something toasty (And roasty!). This blend has some subtle vanilla, however I found the fruity flavours were overshadowed by the base. I still enjoyed it, I just didn’t taste any pear. The base is very roasty (like whole grain bread or over baked pizza dough)…or like a houjicha. Minerals (like how burnt marshmallow charcoal is a touch bitter and minerally) come out the longer you savour the mouthfull of it.

Roasty toasty streak continues…

Had this one in the morning, and while I did get pear/vanilla as a side note to the thick, deep toasty and almost nutty houjicha profile I also felt like I was getting a really interesting and surprisingly natural tasting banana note? Like, the taste of a very nearly perfectly ripe banana with that tiny, tiny wisp of green sharpness. Super unexpected in this cup.
