I’m not very experienced “roasted” teas. I find that Hojicha’s lose some of the dynamic and interesting deep green tea flavors, which is ok for me because of the satisfying roasty comforting flavor.
This tea has those roasty elements but it still has a lot of green tea flavor. I made this in a tea infuser ball and steeped it for probably around 3 or 4 minutes. The tea was a light amber. The taste started with a roasty warm base, and it had an almost milky mouthfeel and kind of that “green tea funk flavor” The roasted elements of this tea were subdued but it balanced nicely with the other flavors.
Not the best tea I’ve ever had but its something I wouldn’t mind drinking on a regular basis.
