I finally tried Hojicha + Yuzu (3 oz - $4) as stated at previous post / visit before closing down at shaw tower and moving another new location (51 Beach Road). Hojicha was quite soft texture and mild and not much strong roasted tea taste. Yuzu was light texture and refreshing taste. I decided to mix and match another refreshing taste for new direction.

Houjicha Frappicuno (Venti - $8.70) I found its average and mild roasted tea taste. I think it's average standard of hojicha and similar to green tea quality. I think I want to try it out Pure Matcha Latte (without sugar) next time. Most of my friend recommended for Pure Matcha Latte too.

I felt that Baumkuchen Roasted Green Tea ($2.30) (Original Price: $2.90) was much stronger roasted tea (Hojicha) taste. Baumkuchen looked quite hard texture due to layers of the cake
but the corner of cake was quite soft and easier to tear apart into half.

I felt that Black Hojicha ($2.60) was leaning towards chocolate taste and not much Hojicha taste :"( Like not much roasted tea taste. Got 1 for 1 on Valentine Deals from 13 February to 15 February.

Mixed Flavour Soft Serve (Matcha + Houjicha) ($7) Houjicha was not that intense and more towards strong roasted tea taste whereas Matcha was more heavier, intense and stronger taste. Thank you, Tsujirihei Honten for giving free Yamari Jelly for every soft serve. I really like yamari jelly so much that contain a lot of Dark Green Powdered Tea Warabimochi, Shiratamako and grounded red bean paste. It's so good for warabimochi, shiratamako and ground red bean paste was quite soft and chewy.

Houjicha ($7) is less intense than matcha and more towards strong roasted tea taste. I decided not add sauce into Houjicha Soft Serve as got bad experience during first time having soft serve was melting too fast with adding sauce and also want to try original taste without adding sauce at same time.

Any cake ordered on last month and comes with Hojicha Latte ($2.00). I felt that Hojicha latte is not strong taste and quite rich roasted tea aftertaste.

Yuzu (Hojicha) Float ($6.80) is interesting concept for adding yuzu float into matcha beverages. Its quite nice to drink for mixing hojicha + float but easily to melt quite fast. Worth it trying out for first time when you do not know what you want to order.

Tsujiri Hojicha Parfait ($7.70) consist of hojicha ice cream, sweet beans, cornflakes, jelly, chocolate roll biscuit and topped with cherry. I find the Hojicha ice cream quite diluted and for taste otherwise, mild rich and smoky aftertaste I just like their standard serving and price remain the same. I didn't like Hojicha's standard much at here because most of people focus on Matcha mostly. 😅
---
O-matcha (Kinako Kuromitsu) (Large - $6.60) it's one of unique latte selection from the menu. The temperature of O-matcha (Kinako Kuromitsu) just nice and good to have during cold weather. Its mix of bitter and sweet aftertaste probably I didn't stirred O-matcha (Kinako Kuromitsu) well before consuming.
