Craft Tea Fox specialises in Matcha and Houjicha products. How they started was purely due to their need for a non-alcoholic drink and they can’t find good selection at 7-Eleven. Hence, they decided to offer delicious yet healthy Matcha easy and accessible to a wider audience, in a way that is honest and environmentally sustainable.
I got hold of the barista-quality Uji Matcha and Uji Hojicha. Both are great for making your own tasty silky Tea Latte. Importantly, both are sugar-free which allows us to customise our preferred sugar level; this is important for me. Equally important is that both are preservative-free as well.
Both the Houjicha and Matcha are available in 20g and 100g.
Instead of using it for simply latte, I tried it in baking recipes and I find that it goes extremely well when the bake consist of diary item such as cheese. And since Burnt Cheesecake is such a hotcake item, here is the recipe for the Houjicha Matcha Marble Burnt Cheese cake
