Ho­jicha

Qantas - - DINING ROOMS GET COSY -

Ho­jicha is a Ja­panese tea. But un­like matcha tea, which is green and earthy, ho­jicha lends a brown hue and nutty flavour to food. The ho­jicha crème brûlée at Tarte by Ch­eryl Koh (tarte.com.sg) in Sin­ga­pore is a lion of the genre. You’ll also find Syd­ney’s Black Star Pas­try (black­starpas­try. com.au) us­ing the in­gre­di­ent in its Ja­panese For­est Cake, made with lay­ers of ho­jicha sponge, so ex­pect to see it on more dessert menus around Aus­tralia, pronto.
