About Sweet Matcha:
Sweet Matcha adds a flavorful kick to smoothies, shakes and lattes. Known for its vegetal umami flavor, Matcha pairs well with other ingredients and can also be used in everything from brownies to ice creams, glazes, macarons, cookies and cakes. Powdered green tea contains L-theanine, an amino acid known for producing a calm alertness which can balance the effects of caffeine.
Here are a couple simple recipes to get you started:
SWEET MATCHA LATTE
Whisk 1 tablespoon Sweet Matcha into 2 ounces hot water. (You may use a Chasen if you have one, or a small kitchen whisk.) Separately heat 8 ounces of milk to about 160°F on the stovetop or froth with espresso steamer.
Pour over the liquid matcha and enjoy.
