Matcha is a green tea powder produced from shade-grown tea leaves, which gives it its refreshing, slightly sweet flavor, vibrant green color, and silky texture. Matcha makes a delicious tea and is often used in cooking and baking.
*Culinary grade matcha is a very high-quality tea, with a slightly different flavor profile than ceremonial grade matcha. It has a more robust flavor than ceremonial grade matcha, is slightly less sweet, with more bitter notes.
Matcha is delicious as an iced tea, as well as the traditional hot tea, and makes wonderful green tea lattes and matcha smoothies, as it pairs perfectly with other flavors. Matcha is also commonly used in a variety of sweets and baked good recipes, including ice cream, pies, mousse, cupcakes, shortbread cookies, and pancakes.
