Roasted Green Tea Hojicha Latte
Very popular in Japan, Hojicha is traditionally a green tea whose leaves have been roasted for a few minutes, transforming the typical vegetal notes of Japanese green teas into toasted, woody and nutty notes.
Although excellent drunk in the form of hot tea in a teapot, it is the latte version of this beverage that is currently experiencing a gain in popularity. A Hojicha powder is then used rather than leaves and the preparation is similar to that of a Matcha latte.
A perfectly enveloping tea in rainy weather. Try it with a touch of cinnamon or cocoa powder!
