Thumbs up!"The roast imparted a great coffee like feel to it, but without the, in my opinion, offensive bitterness that usually follows. "

hojicha.jpgI didn't sleep well last night. I have no clue why I didn't sleep well, but I didn't. The day before was pretty light, I played on the computer, did some shopping, and a little laundry. I didn't pull anything, I didn't overwork myself, I didn't eat anything nasty before bed. It was literally all lights green when I hit the bed, followed by couldn't sleep, and couldn't get comfortable all night. I woke up feeling exactly as if some giant Mr. Magoo had mistaken me for a Rubik's Cube. Feeling like Troy the pretzel boy I hobbled my way to the kettle in hopes of regaining some semblance of basic manhood and humanity.

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
