The Matcha Hojicha latte (ice) is smooth and thick. I totally recommend it to try. The taste of the green tea is good and evident. I can't really taste the hojicha but the entire combo when stirred is just quite yummy. Maybe those who have tasted the ice Matcha latte alone would be able to tell the difference when the shot of hojicha has been added as for me this is a good combo. The goma Cake has split us into 2 group. Personally it's pretty thick and good enough for me. My friend finds it ordinary. I guess you will have to taste it to decide.
