Infernal Pact - Houjicha Matcha
Japan

Like making a deal with an extraplanar demonic entity for incredible power, this tea is satisfying, energizing, but fickle.

The Infernal Pact is a powdered tea made from houjicha, which is oven-roasted Japanese green tea. Now this isn't technically a matcha, it's a "powdered tea," since it isn't Tencha-grade steamed Japanese green tea. We call it matcha anyway, though, 'cause it might as well be.

A traditional bowl of this will result in an astringent, toasty, filling drink, while making a sweet matcha latte of it will give you a roasty toasty sweet and smooth latte like nothing else. Taste the fire, and enjoy your pact.

Brewing Suggestions (Sweet Matcha Latte)

  • Warm a ¼ liter (≈8 oz) of a milk or milk substitute.
  • Boil a ¼ liter (≈8 oz) of water, but not fully (80°C/175°F is perfect)
  • Mix together, and add ½ tbsp of powder and ½ tbsp of sugar.
  • Stir thoroughly.
  • Enjoy, and drink without straining!

Brewing Suggestions (Traditional Bowl)

Suggested tools: Matcha Bowl, Matcha Whisk, Matcha Spoon.
If you wanna get started, consider a Matcha Starter Kit!
