4 tablespoons of Houjicha (or hojicha) tea leaves (I used Houjicha Smoky Roast)
200 ml cup water
2 – 3 tablespoons of sugar (it depends on how sweet you’d like it to be)
150 ml cup milk (or soy milk)


1. Bring water to boil and add Houjicha tea leaves. Boil until you can smell the aroma of Houjicha.
2. Add milk and have the heat to LOW and boil until the color becomes a nice brown color. Stir well.
3. Turn heat off and use a sifter to sift the Houjicha latte into a cup.
4. You can garnish your Houjicha Latte using foam milk or you can treat yourself to a nice creamy whipped cream.
