It’s not all Matcha do about nothing you know… (Ahem!) If you’re not already supping on the green stuff, or turning your food green for halloween with it, then there are plenty of reasons why you should be… I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with Teapigs founders Nick & Louise, who taught a group of brilliant food bloggers how to taste tea (the slurp really does take some mastering, and also makes a huge difference to the taste… who knew?!)… So once I could tell my Oolong from my darjeeling and my green tea from my jelly & ice cream infusion (!) I became quite taken with the virtues of matcha…
And it’s true, it’s a buzz without the jitters and crashes of coffee… and there’s a soft sweetness to its taste, which makes quite a lovely latte… So, inspired I’ve gone about sourcing some of the best recipes using Matcha, from the best bloggers I could find so check out links below along with my own matcha recipes here, and of course, feel free to leave your own favourite matcha recipe links in the comments below:
