Rich, malty, and chocolatey, this toasted green tea makes a fantastic tea latte.

It is crafted from finely ground green tea - like a normal matcha - but what makes this powdered green tea so special is that the leaf and stem has first been toasted to become a hojicha. You could also call this tea ground hojicha or hojicha powder.

The colour is nutty brown rather than green - and the resulting tea is much lower in caffeine.

Tasting Notes

Best enjoyed with hot or cold milk - this green tea is particularly lovely with oat milk.

It creates a wonderfully creamy and comforting tea - like nutty chocolate brownies with cream.

Quantity

Use 2g (2 scoops with a traditional bamboo Chashaku spoon) of matcha per 125ml of hot milk.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use milk below 83°C (181°F). Using milk above the scalding point will affect the "foaminess" of the product.

Time

Make a fine paste with 10ml of milk. Add the remaining milk and whisk vigorously in a M or W shape until a fine foam is created.

Cost Per Cup

52p per cup based on 2g of tea per 125ml of milk and 1 infusion.

This can also be enjoyed as an iced tea, using either milk or water.

We recommend whisking to a smooth paste with a little bit of your liquid first, and then topping up with the rest. Full extraction takes about 1 hour, use 3g per litre of liquid.

Chashaku Matcha Scoop

Add a little ceremony to your matcha by using a genuine Japanese matcha scoop to measure your matcha into the bowl.
