How to Make Dalgona Hojicha

We’re sure you must have heard of the dalgona coffee trend by now. The term dalgona originated in South Korea and is named after the popular Korean honeycomb toffee candy. We did our rendition of a dalgona matcha awhile back, and due to its popularity decided to give our hojicha a try!

Dalgona Hojicha Recipe

Have you tried hojicha before? Hojicha is a traditional Japanese tea made from roasted green tea leaves and carries a very robust and nutty flavour. It’s distinctive from other Japanese green teas because of its unique roasting process. Hojicha is fired at high temperatures that alter its colour from green to reddish brown.

Similarly to matcha, our hojicha powder is ground down into a very fine powder that can be used in lattes, blended beverages and culinary delights.
