Hojicha Roasted Tea Latte

Hojicha Roasted Tea Latte

Don't you have some hojicha sitting at the back of your kitchen cupboard!?
Turn it into a warming and sweet latte.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Hoji-cha leaves
2 tablespoons
Fillable tea bags
100 ml
Condensed milk
1 tablespoon
100 ml
Cinnamon powder
as desired


1. Put the tea leaves in the fillable tea bag, and put the bag, along with the water, into a microwave-safe teapot. I make it in a transparent pot so I can see the color change, but you can also use a teacup.
2. Microwave it at 500 W for two minutes. When the colour has deepened, remove the teabag.
3. Dissolve the condensed milk into the hot tea, and then add the milk.
4. Microwave again at 500 W for 2 minutes, then pour it into your tea cup to finish. Sprinkle on some cinnamon powder if you'd like.

Story Behind this Recipe

This was a popular drink at the cafe I used to work at. We used a restaurant-grade steamer, but it's easy to recreate the taste at home using a microwave.
