I've tried several delicious varieties from 3 Leaf, and while the Chocolate Hojicha is tasty, it's not my favorite. It has a nice, smooth chocolate taste, but also has a slight floral undertone in my opinion. I'll definitely continue to drink it in an iced latte, but I prefer the banana hojicha when I'm aiming for less caffeine. The coconut and raspberry matcha are my favorites so far.
I recently had to give up coffee and this hojicha is a great low-caffeine replacement. The chocolate is rich without being overly sweet--I definitely recommend!
We've tried the Banana, Chocolate and Unflavored options so far, and it's a toss up between which flavor I like more between Banana and Chocolate.
The chocolate, when used to make a hot latte, tastes like an earthy, complex hot chocolate, with a better consistency. I find hot chocolates in general to be really sweet and heavy, but the chocolate hojicha brings all the best parts of hot chocolate, with a nuance of its down.
We drink this a few times a week and don't plan on stopping anytime soon
I like the hojichas (banana and chocolate) better than regular matchas!
