From Den's Tea

Den’s Houjicha Powder is made of finely ground whole leaf Houjicha, specially roasted and blended to make a very flavorful powder. Houjicha flavor has been very popular for lattes, ice cream and many other treats in Japan.

Tasting Profile:
Houjicha powder is as fine as matcha, yet it will feel a bit rough to your tongue. Thus, its use as an ingredient in food items is ideal rather than drinking it straight.

Recipes:
Try this powder by replacing Matcha with the same amount to make lattes or any other Matcha food item you like. We specifically recommend it in any cold treat such as iced Houjicha Latte, Tiramisu or ice cream!

I just wanted to tell y’all about something delicious cuz that’s what friends do.

I started my hojicha journey with 3 Leaf Tea hojicha powder, plain and flavored ones. They were good and I did quite a few lattes with them. Then I tried this one from Den’s but derk sent me an awesome hojicha that is not a powder. You steep the leaves and it is awesome and we have been drinking that in the evenings when we have Asian food. So this powder has been a bit neglected.

Now I love ice cream and tea together and found out I adore ice cream with a small pot of lapsang, but the caffeine was keeping me up so I switched to hojicha. It was awesome. But I started thinking about how hojicha would probably make an awesome ice cream syrup.

I tried it today and I love it! I mixed a tiny bit of hot water with sugar and stirred and stirred. Then I added hojicha powder and stirred and made a huge mess because it was basically acting totally hydrophobic. It went everywhere. I finally held it over the sink while I stirred until it was a smooth mixture of syrup consistency. It looked for all the world like chocolate fudge sauce at that point.

I poured it over some homemade vanilla ice cream and it was EXQUISITE. If you have any hojicha powder sitting around neglected, I highly recommend this as an occasional treat. (Disclaimer – I felt like I had to say occasional for health reasons. I want all of y’all to live a really long time.)

Your kitchen accidents turn out amazingly. My kitchen accidents just clog the sink.
