Tea Review: Hojicha (My Green Tea)

My Green Tea
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka Prefecture
Product Description: Pan fired roasted caffeine-free stem and leaf tea.  The browned leaves are imbued with a savory fragrance.  A great nighttime tea.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of roasted nut shells with hints of cocoa and caramelized sugar.

The coppery infusion has an aroma of roasted nuts, fire-seared wood, and fire-roasted vegetables with a taste of roasted nuts.

The finish throughout is sweet and mouthwatering.  The first two steepings were flavorful and the third steeping, while significantly lighter, was also enjoyable.
