Very GoodExcellentReasonable

The aroma of this tea is very strong, almost too strong! I made the mistake of sticking my face into the package and got overwhelmed! Once I sniffed the tea at a farther distance the aroma is still mostly strongly roasted hojicha, no other nuanced notes float through. Once it is brewed however it takes on notes of sweetness and earthiness.

The taste is very strong and delicious! It reminds me of drinking a roasted marshmallow but at maybe a quarter of the sweetness and a hint of pine needle. This is going in my collection of favorite hojicha for sure.
