I've been a fan of the bancha and hojicha at Norbu for some time, but it appears that Greg isn't carrying them any more. Are there other options out there to recommend? I particularly like the roastier, woodsier varieties. Thanks!
Finally getting back to answer this--I think about the only other Houjicha I've had was from Den's, and it was quite lovely. Can't remember if it would count as particularly toasty/woodsie compared to the Norbu, but I loved it.
