This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about tea–bubble tea, flavored teas, baking/cooking with tea. It’s TEA TIME!
I’m always down for a good cup of tea, but I’m partial to green teas. And my favorite variety of green tea of all time? Matcha! There seems to be a Matcha madness going around at the moment. Just read Janet Helm’s post about food trends at the National Restaurant Association show that took place last weekend on her blog, Nutrition Unplugged.
Matcha has a strong, vegetal flavor and when it’s whisked with hot milk, is just absolutely heavenly. Starbucks serves Green Tea Lattes, which are made with Matcha powder, but I would suggest requesting half the amount of simple syrup to spare yourself from a sugar-overload.
Have you tried Matcha or used it in baking? I think this will be my next Matcha mission. For more tea-infused treats, click the blue frog below to see the full collection of Recipe Redux creations!
You can make as many of these guys as your heart desires and add the berries and Matcha to your liking, so there are no exact servings or measurements for this recipe. Just have fun with it!
