Houji-cha Purin (Houji-cha Pannacotta)

Houji-cha (hôjicha) is a Japanese tea which has almost zero caffeine and is a kind of green tea. Because the leaves are roasted, it has a roasted aroma, a very mild flavour and the colour is brown. It’s often given to babies as their first tea, because of the very low caffeine content and the mild flavour. Nowadays it’s used for many desserts and patisseries as well as green tea and matcha flavour. Enjoy this different tea flavoured  “purin” (pudding).
