drank Hoji-Cha (loose) by Yamamotoyama
353 tasting notes

After a hard night’s working organizing the tea cupboard and rearranging it for optimal accessibility and pleasure to the eye, I settled in for a cup of this tea. I had found a bag of this at the H-Mart near me and picked it up (it was $4. Why not?) and am very very pleased with this. It’s a roasted green tea, and is delicious. The flavor is quite light, despite it being roasted, and is very smooth and soothing. I can see myself enjoying a cup of this during a cold winter’s day.

It’s a bit too heavy for DC summertime but I’ll be pulling this back out once the weather turns.

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens. For the most part, I don’t like straight black tea, but appreciate it as part of a blend or flavored. I’ve learned to love the world of flavored teas out there.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I started drinking for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Love: Oolong, almond, coconut, peach
Hate: Ginger
