Beloved for its nutty, earthy, and almost chocolate-like profile, hojicha (ほうじ茶) is a roasted green tea made from sun-grown tea leaves. The concept was first developed in the early 20th century in Kyoto as a resourceful way to use leftover parts of the tea plant. Since then, this lightly caffeinated tea has become a staple in many Japanese restaurants and households.

As a tea powder, hojicha is ideal for crafting lattes (hot or iced) and for preparing delicious baked goods, such as chiffon cakes, madeleines, and more.

Iced Hojicha Latte Recipe

  • 1 tsp hojicha
  • ¼ cup cool filtered water
  • Optional: 1 tsp maple syrup

    Very pleased

    Tastes great, generous amount, attractive packaging, smooth, fine powder, and a lot easier to stir into drinks than matcha typically is. Does tend to settle at the bottom, but easy enough to give a quick stir again. Packaged beautifully and came very promptly. Would buy again from these lovely ladies.

    My everyday milk tea

    I am obsessed with milk teas and am so grateful that Amy and Lani introduced me to hojicha lattes! I look forward to the roasted flavor of hojicha (with a bit of oat milk) every time I wake up and has been such a great addition to my morning ritual.

    I even convinced my brother to order a batch and we both agree it’s the perfect energy boost for our work days.

    Love!

    Such a yummy tea! My partner and I love it in both hot and iced lattes. I've already repurchased another bag because we don't want to be without it.
