From Maeda-en

Our every-day green tea, roasted to perfection! Maeda-en’s Traditional Houji-cha is a highly aromatic tea with a robust, caramelized flavor. It’s great as a palate cleanser, and is great for everyday drinking.

To brew, bring a pot of water to a boil. Steep 1 tbsp of leaves in 1 cup (8-12 oz) of hot water for about 30 seconds, and enjoy.

Bought a bag of this at Mitsuwa to make Hojicha lattes. Back in the day, I used to buy Maeda-en sencha from the Asian market and it was one of the better grocery store loose tea brands. Their Hojicha is no exception and it not only made a tasty latte, but was delicious served straight. It’s sweet and earthy with caramel undertones.

To prepare the latte, I steeped 1 tbls of tea in 1/3 cup of 195 F water for 3 minutes. Sweetened with 1.5 tsp of sugar and added a 2/3 cup of frothed milk.
