Well I finally got myself some Matcha powder to experiment with.

The first thing I did was make myself a cup of tea so that I could get an idea of the flavour.

As a hot drink, I think it tastes quite similar to the Japanese and Chinese Sencha’s that are my favourite green teas. 

However, I think that where Matcha really shines is as a baking ingredient.

In this recipe, I’ve added Matcha to coconut flour and Vanilla Protein Powder for some super-powered protein balls!
