Hojicha Affogato

Hojicha affogato is one of the most delicious ways to enjoy pure hojicha powder with a sweet treat.

The sweetness of the vanilla ice cream, along the roasted green tea and the flavor of Matcha Oishii's hojicha powder which has cacao and nutty notes, combine perfectly, making this hojicha affogato a fantastic healthy dessert or just an evening snack.

Hojicha is so low in caffeine because the green tea leaves are roasted, that is why it becomes brown and loses almost all of its caffeine. So, it is perfect to consume at any time of the day, even in the evening.

Hojicha powder is loaded with health benefits, such as strengthening the immune system and relaxing the mind and body, among multiple other health benefits of hojicha. 

Having an hojicha affogato during a hot summer day is incredibly delicious but also super refreshing, but to be honest, you can also enjoy this hojicha affogato recipe any day of the year, because let's be honest, ice cream can't be refused even during winter, and much less when it has hojicha on top.
