This deep roast Hojicha was exactly what I needed after a night like that. The roast imparted a great coffee like feel to it, but without the, in my opinion, offensive bitterness that usually follows. While it did have a slight grilled-salmon flavor, this was not as strong as in other Hojicha's I've had. Despite my salmon love I was actually happy about this, because then I'd need some salmon. Like all Japanese teas it had a distinctly sweet and viscous finish.
This is perfect to get an otherwise hideous mourning off the scrap heap. It was rich, strong, but not offensive or overpowering. Its a great thing to toss down the hatch when you need something in your stomach, but just aren't ready for food yet. One thing to keep in mind, is that it is, in truth, a green tea, so don't expect much in the way of caffinated goodness. It will, however, ease you to a rolling start, and you can always follow it up with a good breakfast blend, or super-sugar-marshmallow-covered-sugar-O's
