Pumpkin-Houjicha Latte Two Ways

Updated: Dec 6, 2020



Whip up two different pumpkin-houji lattes now or any time you want a cozy cup that inspires thoughts of fall. The first recipe uses ChaTo Roasted Matcha Powder which has a distinctly rich flavor and deep brown color that calls to mind espresso and cocoa. This latte is a flavorful treat that tastes a bit like pumpkin hot chocolate. The second recipe uses loose leaf houjicha from Shizuoka which is roasty and naturally sweet and pairs well with warmed milk. Add pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger to it to enjoy warm spice notes and the subtle roastiness of houjicha.

Ingredients:

12 ounces oat milk

2 teaspoons ChaTo Roasted Matcha Powder

2 tablespoons hot water

Method:

In a small pot, warm 12 oz of oat milk over medium low heat.

Meanwhile, whisk 2 teaspoons of ChaTo Roasted Matcha Powder and 2 tablespoons of hot water in a small bowl.
