Hojicha Powder is a versatile powder that’s made from Hojicha (roasted Japanese Green Tea) and originates in Kyoto Japan. We sometimes say it’s the sister to Matcha Powder. After the baby tea leaves are picked and fixed via pan frying or steaming, the leaves (and sometimes included are the stems, stalks and twigs) are then slowly roasted afterward, the roasted leaves are grounded into powder. The result is Hojicha Powder. This powder has a naturally sweet, roasted aroma with a taste profile of dark chocolate, roasted barley and caramel. Hojicha powder can be used to make hot and cold lattes or mixed in to coffee, tea drink and other food recipes.
