Hojicha (Roasted Green Tea) Hot Chocolate
Hojicha is produced by roasting the green tea over heat. Because of the roasting process, Hojicha is rich in flavor and aroma, contains less caffeine and has a nice brown color. You can make Hojicha at home by following the simple steps described in my recipe. Please refer to my "Self-made Hojicha" recipe to make hojicha at home.I make hojicha chocolate milk when I am craving for something something sweet but want to refrain from taking too much caffeine
