A rich roasted aroma, fairly mellow flavor, with only a little bitterness. Exactly what I would expect of this style. Some hints of the freshness of green tea remain. Moderate level of roast. A few mildly objectionable tones in the aroma...hard to describe...like a slight stale quality (even though overall the tea was very fresh).

Definitely among the better hojicha's I've tried, and inexpensive among the better ones, although still a little on the pricey side; this is supposed to be an inexpensive tea!
