drank Houjicha "Hyottoko" by Ujien
105 tasting notes

I brought this back from Japan and omg this is like the earthiest tasting green tea I have ever had in my life. And I don’t really like it.. at all. I might have oversteeped so I will try again but… meh.

It’s weird because I drank SO MUCH of this specific “winter” hojicha when I was in Japan and it tasted much better than this. But this one has a lot of twiggy pieces in it. Idk if it’s just because this in tea bags or what, but bleh.

Uji(宇治) is a small city which is very close to Kyoto. And Uji is famous for premium green tea in Japan. There’s company called ‘Ujien(宇治園)’, which is quite fancy(!) cafe that sells not only the finest green tea in the japan also green tea or matcha ice cream and cakes! I bought this green tea in Osaka and taste and colour of this tea is truly lovely! My mother sometimes makes me some ’Onigiri(in this case, mum mix green tea and rice. sounds weird? It is delicious) ’ .
