Finished off this bag, and while I loved it at first, the final go was pretty disappointing. It seemed like almost all of the final serving was toasted rice, so I was missing any hojicha flavor.
to leave a comment.
Hojicha and genmaicha seem to make a perfect pairing. The toasted rice, and the mildly smoked/nuttiness of the hojicha make such a comforting cup. Caramel, hazelnut, and burnt sugar. I’m looking forward to enjoying this one at night.
