Hojicha Ice Cubes – Carmy

September 15, 2021

Skip your regular ice cubes and swap in these Hojicha Ice Cubes for your next iced hojicha latte!

As I mentioned in my Matcha Ice Cubes post, growing up, my dad used to turn his Vietnamese iced coffee into ice cubes and add it to his iced coffee. He said it made his Vietnamese iced coffee more flavourful as when the ice cubes melted, it added more coffee flavour instead of diluting it with just plain water. So as a slow sipper of my iced matcha lattes, I decided to apply his methods to my matcha lattes! And since doing so, I’ve really enjoyed how it made my matcha lattes taste so I decided to make hojicha versions! I also love this with my Hojicha Bubble Tea!

What You’ll Need

ingredients for hojicha iced latte ice cubes.
  • hojicha powder

How to Make Hojicha Latte Ice Cubes
