About Yuzu Matcha:
Yuzu Matcha offers the sweet and vegetal flavor of powdered green tea with a hint of sweet-tart yuzu citrus peel. Yuzu Matcha makes an excellent matcha latte or refreshing iced tea.
Yuzu is an aromatic citrus fruit native to central China and now cultivated in other countries like Japan, Korea, France, Spain and Australia. It has the appearance of a small grapefruit and the zest is often used in Japanese and Korean cuisine. Like lemon zest, it adds brightness when paired with food or tea. Its flavor profile also includes slightly floral notes as well as overtones of mandarin orange and grapefruit.
YUZU MATCHA LATTE
Whisk 1 teaspoon of Yuzu 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 (or non-dairy) to about 175°F on the stovetop or froth with espresso steamer. Pour over the liquid matcha and enjoy.
