This is a gentle homemade houjicha sugar scrub that will make your skin silky smooth. 



  • 1 cup organic cane, turbinado, or brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons houjicha tea leaves
  • 45 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, almond oil, hazelnut, avocado oil, sesame oil, or coconut oil


  1. Place the houjicha in a spice grinder and grind until the leaves have become small grains.
  2. Transfer the houjicha to a glass jar or other storage container, and add the sugar. Stir to combine.
  3. Stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil until it’s fully mixed and add another tablespoon. Keep adding and stirring slowly until you get the grainy/sandy texture of a scrub.

Add 1-2 extra tablespoons of oil for a more luxurious scrub.
