Organic, new leaves that grow back after the first spring harvest are picked and cured in the traditional manner then slowly, roasted in gas fired iron rotating ovens. Roasting changes the character and flavor. Delicious in any season, hot or cold. Convenient, easy to use, Earth friendly tea bags. Contains 67% less caffeine than brewed coffee.

Lovely! just had this again with breakfast…a piece of whole wheat toast with butter. The combination of Hojicha and toast is just savory!! to me, the flavor profile has become increasingly clear…definitely a light, slightly burnt popcorn note (not burnt perhaps, but maybe roasted.. can u roast popcorn??)

this tea is truly delicious.

truth be told, i was so hungry (and excited about the resultant flavor combination), i scarfed down the toast before the tea was ready & thus, defeated the purpose of this pairing. i think i managed to get 1 or 2 bites of toast in along with the tea (tho it was too hot..) next time i’ll simply have to exercise restraint, and resist the urge to put the toaster on before the kettle.

Sipping this again. Only steeped at two minutes, and it doesn’t taste too much different—although it’s been a while, so who knows.

It’s definitely green, I realize. But roasty, so that there’s a good vegetal taste under a barley and/or cooked rice sort of note. I like it.

Aroma when Dry: Bright, nutty
After water is first poured: Warm, bright, nutty, faint grass
At end of steep: sweet, buttery, nutty
Tea liquor:
At end of steep: light mossy green
Staple? Type yes, prefer loose, will look into if brand carries this type in loose leaf.

Taste:
first notes: creamy, nutty, buttery, roasty with minor hint of grassyness
As it cools? Notes mellow out slightly, tea stays roasty and buttery, sweetens (eastern) a bit
Additives used (milk, honey, sugar etc)? No
Lingers? Yes, notes blend slightly, but all linger with character.

Just trying this for the first time – this is my first hojicha too. I’m on the fence. In a way, it just tastes like plain green tea, but it is smoother which I really like. I thought it might taste roasted, but it doesn’t at all. I just read that hojicha has reduced caffeine..maybe not the best choice for first thing in the morning! :)
