Recent Tasting Notes

Bought this quite a while ago and managed to forget about it without opening it. I am still trying to like green tea and I don’t always like it. I think this is a good quality tea. It is fresh tasting and vegetal in nature. It’s quite floral. Too floral for my tastes. I am not sure if I like sencha, I know many love it. I have always been more of a fan of black teas and do prefer puerh above all others.

I brewed this twice in a 12oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and 175 degree water. I steeped it for 1 min and 1.5 min.

Preparation
3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I find this a decent tea as hojicha goes. I have begun drinking it at times because it is lower in caffeiine. This one is very roasty and I added some sweetener to it.

Have you tried the flavored hojichas from Yunomi? They have some really tasty ones.

I had wondered about flavored hojicha. I will check out their website.

I picked up two of their flavored Hojichas last night.

I hope you enjoy them. A couple are surprisingly good as milk teas which is my favorite way to drink them before bed.
