Iced Hojicha Latte with Grass Jelly

A popular bubble tea topping is combined with milk and Japanese roasted green tea to create the refreshing Iced Hojicha Latte with Grass Jelly.

Grass jelly has a delightfully bouncy texture and an earthy mint flavor that pairs beautifully with hojicha. The plant-based herbal jelly can be made from scratch by boiling the Mesona plant or by using a powder. Luckily, grass jelly is also readily available in a can to enjoy anytime.
