Hojicha is a green tea which originates from Japan, well known for its earthy, nutty, caramel notes. It differs from other green teas as it is roasted, therefore the end product is more of a brown color than it is green.

Another favorite right hyurrr!! Hojicha is a green tea which originates from Japan, well known for its earthy, nutty, caramel notes. It differs from other green teas as it is roasted, therefore the end product is more of a brown color than it is green. Today we’ll be talking about how to make Hojicha Milk Tea, or Hojicha Tea latte, again depending on whether you make it hot or cold. Either way, this drink is the stuff, and It’ll make you run for the hills, away from your boba shops.

Three main ingredients: My Green Tea’s Kuki Hojicha loose leaf tea, non-dairy creamer, and black sugar rocks. My Green Tea’s Hojicha because it is simply incredible, but you can also check out ShiZen Houjicha loose leaf tea Non-dairy creamer because of what I said in our post on How to Make Jasmine Milk Tea. Black sugar rocks because it complements the rich, caramel notes of the tea – I highly recommend Hsin Tung Yang Black Sugar that can be found at your nearest Asian-American Supermarket like 99 Ranch Market or H-Mart. If you’re unable to find this magical black sugar at your nearby supermarket, try Guangxi Specialty Black Sugar on Amazon.

Note: black sugar is different from brown sugar. It is the preferred sugar by women in Taiwan and Japan because of the minerals that it contains. It is darker than brown sugar, unrefined, and actually contains more valuable minerals compared to white sugar.

Ready to boba?

How to Make Hojicha Black Sugar Milk Tea

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. Using a french press, tea pot, or tea infuser, brew the tea with water for 4 minutes. If you don’t have a french press or tea infuser, brew the tea directly in a pitcher and filter with a sieve or coffee filter.
  3. Remove the tea and add Coffee-Mate and sugar.
  4. Stir well and serve.
    We like to have this drink as a warm latte, but you can make this a cold bubble milk tea if that’s what your heart desires! Cold optional:
  1. Leave to cool, or pop the pitcher into the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Scoop half a cup of ice into a martini shaker. Crushed ice is great, but cubed works fine too.
  3. Pour the mixture into the shaker, put the cap back on, and shake, shake, shake! 10 seconds will do.
  4. Filter the drink into a serving glass, and utilize half of the remaining ice from the shaker in the drink.
