From Mitoku

Mitoku Hojicha is a traditional tea with a distinctive smokey flavor and aroma. Hojicha is made from gently roasted bancha tea leaves. Refreshing and mild, Mitoku Hojicha is an ideal drink at any time of day. To prepare, pour boiling water over tea leaves (2-3 teaspoons/cup). Steep 2 minutes, or until brewed to taste. Serve hot or chilled. The leaves can be reused once. To maintain the tea’s freshness, reseal the bag after opening, and store in a cool, dry place.

Picked this up on a whim while I was out shopping this weekend. It tastes quite different from other green teas, so much so that I had to look it up to see what category it falls under. So far, the taste really reminds me of darker oolongs. I don’t think I used enough leaf, since the instructions said to use 2-3 tsp/cup, so maybe my opinion will change later today when I try again! I like it, but I’m not a huge fan.

Earthy, but not too earthy. Not bitter or overpowering at all. The liquor is a great color, I like to add some honey to the tea also. Has a little bit of a butterscotch flavor to it.
