Delicious and cozy

I love the Maple Houjicha tea from Friday Afternoon! The maple flavor is so delicious and natural- none of that nasty fake maple flavor here- and it melds with the toasty Houjicha notes perfectly. It is tasty with or without milk and perfect for chilly winter (or spring!) mornings.


I caught this tea just before it went out of season and I'm so glad. The aroma is heavenly and it makes a beautiful tea with a delicate maple flavor. I'll buy this one again!

Fantastic tea on a chilly day

I've had other maple teas, and I've had other houjicha, and I've not liked any of them nearly as much as this one. For me, the clear maple aroma is definitely a plus.

Fantastic on its own; also pairs well with baked goods and many other snacks.

Fine tea, but kind of gilding the lily

Having a houjicha season lately, so I finally tried this one. I could sniff this tea all day. The maple is so lovely with that toasted houjicha smell. In the cup, it's in the category of fine, but the maple isn't necessary. I trend toward a preference for 'don't add flavoring to tea' but Friday's shown a really deft hand with adding flavors that don't overpower the tea. Here, it does blend well and is perfectly drinkable, I just find myself thinking I'd prefer it plain. I love houjicha as a supporting character in other blends, but I guess I've learned that I like it standing alone when it's the star of the show.

A Delicious Alternative to Classic Hojicha Tea

As a lover of Japanese Hojicha tea, this was an INCREDIBLE choice if you're looking for something a little different. The Maple brings a lovely layer of flavor to something that's usually very earthy. I am so glad I bought 2 bags of this because this is now my go-to evening tea. After a meal is the best time to enjoy a delicious cup. It's like a dessert in itself without all the added sugar! Highly recommend!
