Tea Review: Asairi Hojicha (Chado Tea House/Kimikura)

Asairi Hojicha
Chado Tea House/Kimikura
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka Prefecture
Product Description: Very tasty premium Hojicha roasted tea! Lightly roasted the first flush stem Hojicha tea. The appearance, aroma and taste, all are different from ordinary Classic Hojicha. Slight roasted scent and sweetness explores in your mouth and gently expands and stays awhile. Sweet also feel crispness from stem tea, tasty! If you are fun of Hojicha, Guricha and Genmaicha, we highly recommend try this tea!

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of roasted nut shells, almond butter, and nori.

The golden infusion has a buttery, nutty (macadamia), and lightly green aroma and taste.

Throughout three infusions, the taste was smooth and savory with a long finish.
