Taster’s Review:

The scent of this tea is reminds me of roasted grass topped with something sweet. A part of me dislikes just how roasted this tea smells, but when I sip this blend, I’m reminded of why I like it so much.

I enjoy how balanced this tea is. The caramel is soft, but adds the nicest whisper of sweetness to the roasty Hojicha. It reminds me a bit of those chewy caramel squares that come in individual wrappers.  What’s lovely about this tea is that I don’t detect anything artificial about the flavoring. The caramel blends so well with the tea itself. As for the hojicha base, it’s quite roasty as I mentioned before, but also has a nutty flavor to keep it from becoming too bland. The cup as a whole reminds me of caramel covered nuts that have been baked in an oven.. a bit like toffee, perhaps?

If you’re looking for something different, I recommend this tea as there aren’t too many sweet hojicha blends out there. It makes a delicious and comforting treat for the end of the day. This tea will satisfy your sweet tooth without being too rich.
