Crafted using second-flush sencha from Kyotonabe and Uji, our hojicha makes a subtly sweet, nutty base for baked goods and lattes.

What is hojicha?

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


  • ¾ cup ice
  • ¾ cup your choice of milk (recommended: barista-grade oat milk)
  • 1 tsp hojicha
  • ¼ cup cool filtered water
  • Optional: 1 tsp maple syrup


  1. Add ice to highball glass.
  2. Add milk to ice. If desired, add maple syrup. Stir well.
  3. In a chawan (tea bowl) or katakuchi (spouted bowl), add hojicha powder and cool filtered or spring water. Whisk until combined. Alternatively, you may use an electric frother in a tall beaker until combined.
  4. Carefully top milk with hojicha and stir.

    I love this hojicha powder!

    Delicious! I’ve been making hojicha lattes basically every morning since I got this. It is the BEST. I love the extra nutty flavor of the roasted matcha. Definitely the best quality matcha I’ve ever had and the bag lasts a long time.

    Excellent Flavor

    My partner and I used this to make a hojicha cream pie that came out wonderful! It has a nice roasty flavor and a richness that's reminiscent of chocolate. I also followed package directions to make a hojicha latte, and I'd definitely recommend using 2 tsp. At 1.5 tsp, the hojicha flavor is a bit weaker than I personally like.
