While you may prefer the smooth taste of steeped loose leaf hojicha for your daily cup of tea, ground hojicha powder is a must-have baking staple!
Why ground hojicha should be used in your recipes
When baking with an hojicha infusion, the delicate flavor of the brew is often overpowered by other ingredients. Therefore, the distinct taste of hojicha is best experienced in recipes that include a powder made from the full roasted green tea leaves and stems. Best of all, hojicha powder is much easier to add to any recipe. Since steeping is not required, you can use it in dishes that don’t contain any water.
