Matcha + Hojicha Latte with Caramel Drizzle

Matcha + Hojicha Latte with Caramel Drizzle

If you can't decide between a matcha or hojicha latte, then try combining the two to make this earthy and subtly sweet Matcha + Hojicha Latte!

What is Hojicha?

Hojicha is actually a roasted green tea. It gets its distinctive reddish brown colour which differs from other green teas such matcha, since the tea leaves are roasted over charcoal.

Because of the high temperatures during roasting, hojicha loses much of its caffeine content

Hojicha has a slightly sweet and smoky taste -- a little nutty, similar to coffee without the bitterness.

  • 2 tsp Hojicha Powder
  • 4 oz water divided
  • 4 oz warm or cold water, divided
  • 8 oz milk of choice
  • 1 cup ice 
  • 1 tablespoon Caramel Syrup (drizzled on glass)
  • Optional: sweetener to taste
