Have you ever had cupcakes that are so good you don't really need any special frosting? These hojicha cupcakes (roasted green tea) are just that. With plenty of earthy, roasty hojicha flavor, you could eat them plain, with a dollop of whipped cream, or my favorite, sweetened whipped cream with some matcha (green tea) powder sprinkled on top. Oh, and don't forget the black sesame.
