Featured Reblend for April 2017!
This was a tea that I received a few requests to reblend in addition to receiving quite a few votes to be reblended for the 12 Teas of Christmas box last year, so I decided to give it a reboot! The first time I crafted this blend, one comment that I did hear about it was that the flavor of the Houjicha was so strong that it seemed to obscure the notes of lemon and cheesecake.
With the success that I've had with the combination of Houjicha and Shou Mei, I decided to add a little bit of Shou Mei to this blend too to lighten the aggressive roasty-toasty flavor of the Houjicha. As it turns out, when I was measuring out the teas, I didn't have quite enough Shou Mei on hand, so I also used some organic Bai Mu Dan along with the Shou Mei - so rather than being a Houjicha/Shou Mei blend, this is a Houjicha/White Tea blend.
