drank Organic Hojicha by Mighty Leaf Tea
267 tasting notes

I’m having an abysmal day so am trying to keep the tea flowing. And I’m in the library at my language program, so I was limited to their teas for a little while (I brought my own to the library but already finished the tea I brought. Yikes.) Anyway, I typically dislike Hojicha but decided to give it another shot for the sake of trying one of the few Mighty Leaf teas I have left to try.

And I kinda like it. I really enjoy barley tea and this is like green meets barley. Very nutty, only slightly vegetal. I think the water the coffee shop gave me is a bit hot for this tea, so I was careful about the steep time.

In Japan, (cold) barley tea (mugicha) is a summer drink- so I feel happy drinking this in my Japanese language program because of its similar taste. Give it a try and see if you don’t feel refreshed and cleansed!

Grad student in sociocultural anthropology. I drink tea while reading for my courses, and it makes the books go down easier. I genuinely like most kinds of tea – although fruit tisanes kind of scare me.
