Matcha

Matcha, matcha, matcha! That’s all the tea world is buzzing about these days. On this page you’ll find useful posts that I’ve written about the green stuff.

The Basics – What is Matcha?

Matcha is a powder made from green tea leaves that are shade grown. It’s often touted for its health benefits because it has high levels of antioxidants.

How to Make It

A lot of people find making matcha intimidating but it’s a piece of cake once you get the hang of it. You can improvise with tools you already have but I highly recommend getting yourself a high-quality bamboo whisk.

Get Nerdy with Your Matcha

Just as you’ll find with other kinds of tea, there’s a world of complexity to explore with matcha. The cultivar, harvest season, and region all have an effect on what your tea will taste like.

Recipes

Matcha is easy to incorporate into just about any recipe. I really love the balance that it gives to desserts. Just remember that a little bit of green tea powder can go a long way.
