How To Make Matcha Tea
What's great about it
I love using Matcha in my cooking, and have incorporated it into a number of spectacular recipes in my Earth To Table and Healthy Baking Cookbooks. I also drink loose leaf Green Tea throughout the day as it delivers similar benefits.
A cup of Healthy Chef Organic Ceremonial-Grade Matcha can help to make you feel relaxed, calm and happy due to the high levels of L-theanine, and it also energises your body.
1/2 teaspoon Healthy Chef matcha green tea powder
125 ml (½ cup/4 fl oz) dairy free milk, heated
125ml (½ cup/4 fl oz) just-boiled water (80°C)
COMBINE matcha, milk and water into a mug or matcha bowl.
WHISK well until combined. I normally use my bamboo matcha whisk that combines the tea perfectly.
SIP slowly and enjoy.
Notes and Inspiration
There are endless ways to use Healthy Chef Matcha in my awesome Samurai Smoothie, raw desserts and as flavouring for icing and cakes. Think raw key lime pie made with cashew nuts, lime juice and matcha then topped with pomegranate jewels. I also love making my matcha bliss balls packed with protein from coconut, cashew, matcha, Healthy Chef Protein and a little lemon.
