Miss cookies was kind enough to send me a sample of this one (along with their Genmaicha powder). I must say, I was quite curious as to exactly how this would taste. The powder is very fine and it has a slightly greenish brown color, the same color I would expect to see in regular houjicha. It also smells extremely similar to houjicha and has a nice sweet roasted aroma. I used a half teaspoon of powder in 8 ounces of unsweetened soy milk.

Ooooh I could smell the lovely roastiness as soon as I popped the lid open on my Blender Bottle. Yum, this is delicious with the nutty and very slightly sweet soy milk! It tastes exactly as I would expect a houjicha prepared chai-style to taste. It’s roasty but not overpowering and the creaminess of the milk accents it perfectly. So good! :D

Cookies, if you’re reading this, try this one with milk! :D
