Author Notes

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. —Rie
