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!

A nutty and fruity hojicha, subtly aromatic. This is my favorite example of this type of tea yet...which surprises me because it's from China.

The dry leaf looks dark and has a fairly strong roasted aroma, but there's not much roastiness in the aroma of the brewed cup. Instead, I sense mostly nutty and fruity qualities. Much more oolong-like than typical for a hojicha. There's a certain lightness and freshness to this tea too...almost like a hint of wintergreen, a quality nearly always absent in this style of tea. There's also a hint of smokiness.

I'd definitely recommend this one; I think it is my all-time favorite hojicha. It's also very reasonably priced, and organic certified as well.

I like this tea. It's dark and strong, and it has a nice, rich flavor. I added cream and sugar.
