What is hojicha?
Hojicha is a type of Japanese green tea that has a distinctive savory flavor due to the roasting of the tea leaves.
Compared to matcha, roasted tea contains less caffeine and has a relaxing effect.
Along with matcha, hojicha is popular in Japan, and cafe menus and sweets using hojicha are also popular.
Although not yet as famous as matcha, it is becoming a little better known overseas.


How to make cafe menus using hojicha?
For cafe menus using hojicha, simply change the amount of matcha you used to use to hojicha powder.
Our hojicha powder is available in two types, "Bitter" and "Rich".
Here are the features of each.

    It was a great product. The particles are incomparably finer than commercially available hojicha powder. The scent is also dozens of times more powerful. The taste is also condensed with hojicha and is the best to match with milk. I will repeat again! thank you very much!

    I'm glad I bought this powder. The chiffon cake, which is very thin and familiar with the flour, has a fluffy aroma and is baked. The reaction around me was good, so I would like to repeat it. I am happy to find a better product than ever before. It was as if I was drinking tea with a modest amount of sugar.
