How to make refreshing dairy-free Hojicha Latte


  • 1 Hojicha Tea bag
  • 150ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 30ml Hot water (around 90°C or 195°F)
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Brown sugar (optional)
  • 2-3 Ice cubes


  1. First, boil your water and then allow it to cool to about 90°C or 195°F.
  2. In a small bowl, add your hojicha tea bag and pour 30ml of the hot water over it. Mix it around to release the tea flavour and allow to brew for 3-5 minutes to make a concentrate.
  3. Next add your honey (and brown sugar if you like a sweeter drink) to the concentrated hojicha. Mix them well and take the teabag out.
  4. Put your ice cubes into a tall glass and pour over 150ml of almond milk.
  5. Finally, pour your sweetened hojicha concentrate over the top of the milk and stir it in.
  6. Enjoy!


This recipe works fine with regular milk, oat milk or soy milk too.

If you want a stronger hojicha flavour, you can steep 2 teabags in step 2.
