Layered Hojicha Latte

I absolutely adore their hojicha. Hojicha is roasted green tea and has lower caffeine and less bitter than other tea. I’ve had hojicha is a lot of different desserts, but making a latte out of these loose leaves if my favourite.

  1. Steep 2 teaspoons of hojicha in 1 cup of hot water for 1 -2 minutes.
  2. Froth 130ml of milk with a teaspoon of liquid sugar.
  3. Pour milk and honey mixture in a tall glass.
  4. Slowly pour your hojicha tea to create the layers in the latte.

The roasted flavour of hojicha mixed with the warm frothed milk really feels like a warm hug to me. One of my favourite drinks to make and easily impress any guests.

  2. Froth 130ml of milk with a teaspoon of liquid sugar.
  3. Pour milk and honey mixture in a tall glass.
  4. Slowly pour your matcha tea to create the layers in the latte.
  5. Enjoy!
