These Hojicha cakes are soft and spongy with a hint of Hojicha fragrance. They’re great to serve with a cup of Hojicha tea to share these yummy cakes with your family at home. You may wonder what is Hojicha (焙じ茶). It’s actually a roasted green tea. The leaves will change to brown colour after being roasted, thereby emitting a refreshing fragrance of distinctive nutty earthy flavour.
