Dainty Green Tea Desserts - Matcha Recipes

Enjoy The Benefits Of Green Tea As Well As The Satisfaction Of An Healthy Dessert
Jo Cooks

Matcha, tea leaves from the camellia sinensis plant, are grown in Japan and the whole leaf is ground into fine matcha powder. The leaves are very high in chlorophyll, amino acids, and antioxidants and have a unique flavor that mixes well in sweet desserts and also in savory dishes. It is such a unique color that it seems to inspire bakers to go to extra lengths to make something really beautiful when cooking with matcha.
