I am into hojicha latte since I introduced the recipes on this blog and I have been trying some other conditions. I would like to share an improved recipe that I discovered. Most recipes are good with sugar, but this combination has a well balanced flavor of tea and milk even it is not sweetened. It will make you smile (^-^)
Hojicha leaves: 3g
Hot water: 40ml/1.4oz
Hot milk: 120ml/4.2oz
Ippukuwan (big tea cup)
|1. Whisk the hot milk (120ml/4.2oz) in the ippukuwan until it gets foamy|
2. Brew the hojicha for 30sec
Put tea leaves (3g) into the teapot and add boiling water (50ml/1.4oz)
Steep it for 30sec
3. Pour the brewed hojicha into the ippukuwan
I drew a smiley face as I poured the tea.
If you want to sweeten, you could brew it longer like 45sec for richer flavor.
You need to rinse well the teawhisk immediately to prevent molding and to avoided smell.
