Product Review (submitted on March 7, 2010):
I'm a long-time tea lover and tasted a variety of teas. Hojicha is one of my favorites and whenever I go to Japan, I bring a lot of them back home. But this Harney Hojicha is my personal best so far. I'm really surprised that the other reviewer said this tastes bitter because I like its smoothness most. Hojicha tastes a bit similar to barley tea but more clean and subtle. Of course, everybody has his own taste when it comes to tea -or anything for that matter- but if you're new to Hojicha and want to taste something different, I'd heartily recommend this Hareny Hojicha. It'll be a perfect 'entry' tea.
