Matcha powder and matcha recipes.


Matcha is traditional Japanese green tea made by grinding down whole green tea leaves called Tencha into an ultra-fine powder. Unlike regular green tea, where you steep the leaves and discard them, matcha provides you with all the goodness and nutrients that leaves contain.

With its vibrant green color, matcha holds a special place in Japanese culture. It’s commonly used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies but is also found in various desserts like matcha ice cream and cakes. Find more delicious matcha recipes here.

The Grades of Matcha

Matcha comes in different grades that reflect its quality. Ceremonial-grade matcha is typically reserved for traditional tea ceremonies and is known for its higher-quality matcha powder.

On the other hand, culinary-grade matcha is more affordable and often used for making desserts. The choice between different grades of matcha depends on personal preference. I usually use culinary-grade matcha, and it tastes good to me. Try both grades and find the best matcha powder for you.
