Almond Hojicha Blondies

We collabed with our friends @ ByClio to make these addictive cakey confectionaries using our Hojicha loose leaf. Hojicha, a green tea variety that blends roasted leaves and stems together, is the true star of this treat. The tea lends a nutty + caramelized buttery flavor to them & with just a touch of almond for texture, these sweets are truly irresistible.
