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.
