Lovely! just had this again with breakfast…a piece of whole wheat toast with butter. The combination of Hojicha and toast is just savory!! to me, the flavor profile has become increasingly clear…definitely a light, slightly burnt popcorn note (not burnt perhaps, but maybe roasted.. can u roast popcorn??)

this tea is truly delicious.

truth be told, i was so hungry (and excited about the resultant flavor combination), i scarfed down the toast before the tea was ready & thus, defeated the purpose of this pairing. i think i managed to get 1 or 2 bites of toast in along with the tea (tho it was too hot..) next time i’ll simply have to exercise restraint, and resist the urge to put the toaster on before the kettle.

love tea in every form- from bagged to loose leaf..commercial to niche. i am intrigued by it all & want to learn as much as i can through my 5 senses (tho with tea i’ll presumably be using 3)..am a very sensorial person. love music, perfume, poetry, graphic design, India, Malaysia, Moorish architecture, oh….and tea!

apparently i’m really out of the loop here since i appear to be among the only ones who have not yet tried Golden Moon, Butiki, 52teas, Mandala, Teavivre or Della Terra. i mean REALLY. i need to start lifting this rock up over my head y’all. from the looks of things, i’ve been reenacting Groundhog’s Day every hour on the hour with my uniformed choices. i seek to be anointed!

also, don’t take my numbers too literally; they can’t possibly speak to the actual quality of the tea, much less to the constancy of my own perceptions! what i may feel to be an 88 one day, could very well be a 91 the next, or even 100, depending on my taste buds, blood sugar levels, neuronal firings or planetary alignment ;)
