HOW TO USE MATCHA POWDER

Matcha Green Tea is a fine powder made from dried green tea leaves. This super tea is high in antioxidants and packed with nutrients. Unlike normal tea – which is made by brewing tea leaves, which are then discarded. Matcha green tea is made in such a way that means you ingest the tea leaves – meaning your body gets all the goodness.

Matcha Tea has been used in Asia for many years, but it is only just emerging onto the western market. Traditionally it is enjoyed whisked together with milk and warm water. However it can also be used in a variety of dishes – sweet and savoury!
