This is only my second time having hojicha, it reminds me a lot of genmaicha but less intense. Roasty toasty!
There’s just really nothing special about hojicha to me. If I wanted this taste, I’d more likely go for genmaicha.
Today I have been drinking cheap bagged tea because last night I burnt my tongue on some (presuambly) delicious Indian soup I made and it STILL hurts and my taste has been dulled :(
Usually if I burn my tongue it feels fine the next day! This is too weird!
