The scent is rich but subtle. It gives the impression that the tea will have a deep flavor sealed within it. And it's true - the taste is very well rounded. There isn't any of the sharp wood-like quality you might expect, but instead it's like a balanced earthiness. Something about the tea instantly makes me feel relaxed.

Thanks to Alex for the initial review of this tea, or I might not have even tried it!

Hello and welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first review!

I'm excited that you were inspired to try a tea by reading one of my reviews! I love hojicha across the board, and I also have tended to be impressed by Mountain Rose Herbs, both for buying herbs and their small selection of teas that I've tried. And this is still my all-time-favorite hojicha, and it's also among one of the most reasonably priced!

I look forward to reading more of your reviews! Let me know if you have any questions about tea, or about the website, or if there is any other way I can help you!

Right on :)

Most of the teas I'm trying now are thanks to yours and other reviews on this site. It's really helpful for someone starting out in the world of tea. I can't thank you enough!

The other hojicha I tried was Adagio's, and so I had a base to compare. The MRH one is great by itself, let alone compared to the other. Great prices at that site too. I just wish you could order less than 4 oz at a time, because that's a lot of tea, haha.

Looking forward to writing more reviews and supporting the tea community! Nice to make your acquaintance :)
