I love tea, especially in the wintertime. It gets so cold up here in Canada that drinking tea has become a daily ritual for me! Green teas, black teas, white teas... I love all varieties but have been especially obsessed with the Hōjicha (Houjicha) (ほうじ茶) that my dad brought back from Japan. It's a roasted green tea that has a lower amount of caffeine and is often used as an after-dinner tea to help aid with digestion in Japan. Made from the leaves, this brown looking tea tastes nutty and is a good accompaniment to sweets. I prefer its mild flavour as I don't generally like bold tastes, especially when I'm cooped up inside reading!
