A cup of this the other night; it was deliciously toasty but oversteeped, and managed to be slightly astringent. Whoops? Didn’t think houjicha really got that way, but who knows. It’s also nearing the end of the bag, and is pretty broken up.

Yum! Still really enjoying this one. It’s quite rich/nutty/woody, zero astringency, and a perfect cup for this overly chilly evening.

Backlog from sometime in January.

Thank you to Raritea for this tea! I am really enjoying it – I deviated from my usual choose-my-own-brewing-parameters and went with their recommendation of 30s at boiling, and it was wonderful. Nutty, sweet, roasty, savoury; great in a travel mug (and better out of, I’m sure). Really quite tasty, so I’m sad that Raritea didn’t find it as good! (Although if she had, maybe I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to try it!) Anyhow, I was quite happy with this tea, and will probably keep a houjicha of some variety (I haven’t had enough to know the flavour difference between bancha houjicha and regular houjicha) in stock.
