Organic Hojicha Powder (Roasted Green Tea), 2.46 oz
Hojicha, commonly known as roasted green tea, is well-liked because of its toasty aroma, nutty flavor, and its modest caffeine content. Unlike loose leaf tea or teabags, Liliku Tea’s Organic Hojicha Powder is convenient while remaining healthy. You don’t need to discard used tea leaves or tea bags, but instead, you can absorb all of the tea powder’s goodness that comes from their organic, single-origin, high-grade tea. The tea used to make the powder is grown without the use of any pesticides or chemical fertilizers at a tea farm in the mountains of Gokase, Miyazaki Prefecture, at an altitude of 620 meters (2,000 feet). Unique to their method is the way they employ pan-frying to stop the oxidation of freshly harvested tea—typically, steaming is the method used for green tea produced in Japan. Because of this process, Organic Hojicha Powder has moderate bitterness and astringency. You can dissolve the powder in water or milk and enjoy as a drink. But it can also be used for dessert makings, such as cakes, cookies, pudding, or ice cream.
To enjoy the powder’s toasty aroma and smooth taste with moderate bitterness and astringency, dissolve it in water or milk to make a drink—you can make cafe-quality, aromatic hojicha latte at home effortlessly! The powder can also be used in cooking. Mix it into pancakes, muffins, or cookie batter to make hojicha flavored sweets. Or mix it into whipped cream or custard cream to make a hojicha filling. Pudding and ice cream can be spiced up with Organic Hojicha Powder as well. Also recommended is to make hojicha syrup just by mixing the powder into simple syrup. You can drizzle this syrup over pancakes, ice cream, cheesecake, or yogurt. Also, you can sprinkle the powder over your favorite desserts.
