How to Make an Iced Hōjicha Latte

One of our favorite recipes is this hōjicha latte, which is the perfect pick-me-up on warm summer days. Hōjicha is roasted green tea, naturally low in caffeine. Since you do not have fermentation and oxidation as with oolongs and blacks, hōjicha is fairly straightforward in flavor, an every day drinker rather than a special occasion brew.

Iced Hōjicha Latte

  • 10g hōjicha leaves
  • 8oz milk (we prefer oat milk)
  • 6oz filtered water
  • 1tbsp honey
  • Ice

On the stove, bring water to a boil. Add honey and dissolve. Then add hōjicha leaves and simmer for 5 minutes.

Fill a tall glass with milk and lots of ice, leaving 1/3 of the cup for the tea.

Strain sweetened hojicha tea into the milk and ice. If you prefer a less watery brew, allow the tea to cool first in the freezer before mixing.

Enjoy!
