  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Hojicha tea leaves
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and Hojicha tea leaves. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it reaches a simmer. Remove from heat and let it steep for 30 minutes. Strain the mixture to remove the tea leaves.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and granulated sugar until well combined.
  3. Slowly pour the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.
  4. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  7. Transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for an additional 2 hours to firm up.
  8. Serve the Hojicha ice cream in bowls or cones and enjoy the rich, creamy flavor. Garnish with Hojicha tea leaves, if desired.
