Another ML Collection tea, and I’m going to say that this one is identical to the Mighty Leaf version, Hojicha Organic. I certainly couldn’t tell them apart!
This one is quite a heavy, dark, earthy flavoured green. It’s not bitter or astringent, though, just strongly flavoured. It’s almost slightly salty, which is a little unexpected — it reminds me of seawater! Potentially that’s because I can also taste seaweed. That’s the closest descriptor I have for the flavour I’m getting from this one. It’s not sweet or vegetal like some greens, it’s slightly nutty, roasty, with a definite “green” flavour — seaweed is the closest I can come.
Not a favourite of mine, but then hojicha in general never has been. I appreciated the difference between this one and some of the other greens I’m drinking at the moment — it was a bit of a palate refresher if nothing else! I’ll happily drink up the rest of my bags, but it’s not one I’d seek our again.
