Tea Review: Hojicha Roasted Green Tea (Yunomi/NaturaliTea)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 4

Hojicha Roasted Green Tea
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka Prefecture, Fujieda
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minute

The dry leaves have an aroma of fire-seared wood, roasted nut shells, and a faint hint of cocoa.

The orange amber infusion has an aroma of smoky roasted nut shells, wood, and cocoa.  The taste is smooth and sweet with notes of wood and roasted chestnuts and a long, sweet finish.

This hojicha was flavorful throughout three steepings, mellowing slightly after each infusion and developing a fruit-like note in the second infusion.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
