Hojicha Gold Tea from Culinary Teas

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: Culinary Teas

Product Description:

Hojicha is a roasted green tea which gives it a nutty flavor with almost mocha like notes.

Tasters Review:

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!

    Thanks for the review! This is one of my favorites, I’m not a big green tea drinker and the roasting of this tea is a great alternative for me.
