We use Hojicha Powder from its origin, Kyoto. Hojicha unlike traditional green teas, is roasted after the leaves are steamed. It has a soothing, therapeutic earthy aroma and smoky nutty taste. Hojicha is also low in caffeine which suitable for kids as well. If you are a fan of Matcha, you should try its other family member, Hojicha!
The cookie texture and ingredients are excellent, the final result is very unique and definitely interesting. Not too sweet which is great. I wonder whether a lower dose of houjicha would make these even tastier. Great regardless, will order again!
We absolutely loved these. We had the " plain " ones (i.e. no icing no choc) and really enjoyed them. They have flavour and not super sweet! We also likes the texture of the mochi
These ones are my favourite. Not too sweet just right and taste delicious when warm.
Absolutely delicious! I had the cookies filled with white chocolate and icing sugar. Not too sweet and so tasty! Really tastes like Hojicha.
I bought Hojicha cookies along with the matcha flavoured one. I had them with only dark chocolate inside and it was delightful! You can really taste the hojicha and matcha flavour compare to other cookies I had tried before. Definitely recommend these.
