Description

This creamy and decadent hojicha latte is made with maple syrup and milk. A low caffeine drink to enjoy any time of day!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 teaspoon hojicha powder
  • 1/4 cup boiling
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1-3 teaspoons sweetener of choice

Instructions

For a hot latte: 

  1. Add the milk and sweetener  to a small saucepan and heat until steaming over medium heat. 
  2. Combine the hojicha powder and water in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Pour into your mug.
  3. Top with warm milk and stir to combine. Enjoy!

For an iced latte:

Notes

Hojicha powder vs loose leaf tea: I use ground hojicha in this recipe, but you can also brew a latte with loose leaf hojicha. Pour your boiling water over 2-3 teaspoons of loose leaf hojicha and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain, then proceed with the recipe as written.
