drank Karigane Houjicha by Den's Tea
564 tasting notes

I got a sample of this with my last Den’s order and didn’t get around to trying it until now. It’s a delight! It’s sweet in a green way, like snap peas, with a hint of a more honeyed flavor. The roastiness is gentle and doesn’t overpower the other flavors at all. In fact, it takes a back seat to the other flavors. I’m really glad I reached for it tonight.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
