Where To Buy: Culinary Teas
Hojicha is a roasted green tea which gives it a nutty flavor with almost mocha like notes.
I’ve been called many things…one of those is ODD. Yes, it’s true…more than one person has called me “odd”…I really don’t find anything wrong with that. It just means I am different, right!? If we weren’t different this world would be a boring place. Same thing – when it comes to tea…it’s those ‘odd’ ones that catch my interest sometimes, you know!?
Well, I must say this one is odd…but sometimes odd is GOOD!
The dry smells like toasted peanuts with a slight woodsy smell as well. The wet leaves and post infusion liquid smells like soy sauce. Yes…It reminds me of soy sauce. The color of the liquid is a medium drab brown. The taste is certainly NOT Drab! It has a nutty taste to it but also a roasted or toasted flavor as well as a little like mocha hint. It’s smoother than I anticipated…many Hojicha’s I have tried are far from smooth. I’m so glad this one is!
Yeah…this one is odd but good and fairly Complex. It really makes me THINK…and I like that!
