When the air turns cool and crisp, warm your heart with a sweet-scented Hojicha Yuzu Tea Latte.
What ingredients are needed to make a Hojicha Yuzu Tea Latte?
This bright and citrusy tea latte is made with Hojicha Powder, yuzu marmalade, and your milk of choice.
Hojicha Powder: Japanese green tea grown in Kyoto is roasted and finely ground into a powder to create the rich and toasty Hojicha Powder. Hojicha Powder can be prepared similarly to matcha in both tea-based drinks and desserts.
Yuzu marmalade: The sweet and tart marmalade is made from the juice and peel of yuzu, an aromatic citrus fruit with flavor notes reminiscent of a lemon or grapefruit.
Milk: This hot hojicha latte can be easily prepared with your go-to milk or milk alternative. Try preparing the roasted tea latte with a creamy soy milk for a comforting taste or a neutral oat barista milk that doesn't overpower the taste of the tea.
Where to buy Hojicha Powder?
Hojicha Powder is available in our online shop in both a conveniently resealable pouch (100 g / 3.5 oz) or an economical bulk bag (500 g / 17.6 oz) that's perfect for big fans of hojicha as well as cafes and shops. The Hojicha Powder is crafted in Kyoto, in the famed tea growing region known as the birthplace of hojicha.
Where to find yuzu marmalade?
While it can be difficult to find the yuzu fruit outside of Japan, store-bought yuzu marmalade can often be found in your local Asian grocery store. Locate the condiment or tea aisle, and search for a clear jar filled with yellow jelly near the jam or honey. Check the front label and list of ingredients for the mention of yuzu or yuja. Once you have the yuzu marmalade, you can use it to create a Hojicha Yuzu Tea Latte, an Iced Yuzu Hojicha Latte, or a Fizzy Yuzu Hojicha. You can also add the fruit preserve to a hot tea made with hojicha tea leaves, spread it on toast, or use it to flavor baked goods.
How to prepare a Hojicha Yuzu Tea Latte?
Prepare a Hojicha Yuzu Tea Latte by first whisking up Hojicha Powder and hot water with a spoon, handheld/electric frother, or with a bamboo whisk for best results. Combine the whisked hojicha with a generous tablespoon of yuzu marmalade for a twist on standard sweeteners. Finally top the sweetened hojicha with steamed or velvety frothed milk.
