Matcha is a form of green tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Unlike most teas, matcha is ground into a fine powder and put directly into hot water, meaning you ingest the entire tea leaf. You get more of the antioxidants naturally found in tea leaves.
In recent years, this bright green powder has made its way around the world. People infuse it into lattes, confections and ice cream, to name a few tasty treats. The next time you’re craving this bittersweet flavor, try some of these delicious matcha recipes!
