Vanilla Cold Foam Hojicha
Crafted using our Paragon staple – hojicha, this elaborate drink combines a creamy vanilla cold foam that sits on top of a refreshing and roasty hojicha base. It's smooth, delicious, and once assembled it is aesthetically pleasing!
Steeping Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 30 minutes
Servings 2 Glasses (12oz each)


  • Handheld frother (or a blender as long as the volume is enough to cover the spinning blades; may need to double the foam recipe to achieve this)
  • Glass measuring cup for frothing the cold foam
  • Measuring spoons
  • Small cup to dissolve sugar
  • Medium sized pitcher large enough to steep your tea
  • 2 Serving glasses


Tea Base (Iced Hojicha)

  • 10 tsp Hojicha loose-leaf tea (or 8.5g)
  • 500 ml Room temperature water or hot water if using the hot brew method
  • 2 cups Ice

Sweetener (to highlight tea notes!)

  • 25 ml hot water
  • 4 tsp Sugar (or 15g)

Vanilla Cold Foam

  • 80 ml Whipping cream (or 80g)
  • 40 ml Oat milk
  • 2.5 tsp Sugar (or 10g)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (or 2g)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract


  • Hot Brew: In your pitcher, combine the hojicha loose-leaf and 500ml of hot water. Steep for 5 minutes and strain it into a container and place it in the fridge for 30 min to an hour to chill.
    Cold Brew: In your pitcher, combine the hojicha loose-leaf and 500ml of filtered water at room temperature. Let it steeped for 8 hours in fridge. Strain and set aside.
    10 tsp Hojicha loose-leaf tea (or 8.5g)
  • In one of the serving glasses, dissolve the cane sugar with 15ml of hot water. Portion it evenly between the two serving glasses and set aside.
    4 tsp Sugar (or 15g)
  • To make the cold foam: Combine the whipping cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and oat milk into the glass measuring cup.
  • Using your hand frother, froth the cream mixture on an angle for about a minute. The consistency should be creamy and not runny.
  • Assembling the drink:
    In the two serving glasses, divide the ice evenly. Measure out 225ml of your chilled hojicha and half of the sweetener into each cup.
    Carefully pour over the cold foam over each cup. Stir well before enjoying!


Both methods will result in a refreshing iced hojicha straight tea. You may steep the tea for 8 hours if you have time for a more delicate iced tea, or steep it for 30 mins in hot water for a faster process. Either way, you’re moments away from crafting a unique drink in your home cafe.
