Tea Review: Hojicha Green Tea (Mana Organics)

Hojicha Green Tea
Mana Organics
Type: Green
Origin: India, Assam, Chota Tingrai Estate
Product Description: A roasted green tea with golden liquors and smooth, smoked barely flavor reminiscent of open blue skies in peak summer. This special tea is a unique pairing of Japanese and Assam styles. Our hojicha makes a fortifying draught that ensures no matter how hard you partied the night before you will make that morning meeting.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of seared wood and roasted nut shells.

The bright amber infusion has the aroma and taste of roasted nuts and nut shells.

This is the first non-Japanese hojicha I've encountered and it shares a lot of the characteristics of  a Japanese hojicha while still being unique.  Though the best flavor is in the first infusion, using more leaf would make a second steeping well worth exploring.
