Hojicha Hot Chocolate Mix

Dandelion Chocolate

To craft our Hojicha Hot Chocolate, we blend delicately roasted Japanese green tea with our classically fudgy 70% Camino Verde, Ecuador chocolate and a hint of golden brown sugar. The unique drink is a favorite in our flagship Dandelion Japan café in the Kuramae neighborhood of old Tokyo, and we’ve long wanted to serve it in our San Francisco cafés as well. Because Hojicha Hot Chocolate is time-intensive to make, we’ve only been able to prepare it for table service in our dessert salon, Bloom — until now. For the first time, we’re offering our flavorful Hojicha Hot Chocolate mix to be enjoyed at home or away, throughout the holidays!

A few years ago, Remy Labesque, a very talented industrial designer, attended our Introduction to Chocolate class and asked if there were opportunities to collaborate together. Over many months, he developed the concept for these corked bottles and oversaw their production in Japan. We love how they look in our kitchen, and hope you will find this bottle to be a functional, beautiful object with many future uses.

Whether you prefer dairy milk or an alternative, hot chocolate or iced, our Hojicha Hot Chocolate mix whisks up rich, creamy drinks with subtle smoky notes and a smooth finish. It’s perfect for dunking your favorite buttery baked goods.

Each bottle makes four servings.

Our Chocolate Philosophy

Bean to Bar in San Francisco

We’re Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate maker in San Francisco’s Mission District. For over 10 years, we’ve been turning cocoa beans and organic sugar into pure dark chocolate. We travel and build lasting relationships with cocoa farmers and producers, then craft small batches of chocolate back home in our factory. With our minimal approach, we aim to highlight different beans’ distinctive flavor notes—from classic fudge to tangy fruit.

JUST
TWO INGREDIENTS

Beans and sugar.
That's all.


Our chocolate bars are just two ingredients: cocoa beans and organic sugar. We never add cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla, flavorings, or preservatives because those ingredients mask the inherent flavors in beans.

PRODUCER
FOCUSED

Good cocoa starts
with good relationships.


Good relationships are absolutely essential to procuring consistently good flavor. We work closely with the producers who grow, ferment, and dry the single-origin cocoa beans we source, so we can share this amazing cocoa.

We hope someday you'll join us at our San Francisco factory for a toasty s'more while watching chocolate makers craft beans into chocolate. In the meanwhile, we'll ship bars and truffles to your doorstep, host you for a virtual chocolate class, or answer (chocolate!) questions you might have via phone or email.
