teapigs matcha green tea

I have an undying love for matcha green tea, although I will admit it did take some time for me to convert. As soon as I fell in love with the stuff, I couldn’t get enough from it. Green tea just goes with anything, mixed in mocktails, used in baking, green tea chocolate etc.

The other week I used teapigs matcha tea  to make a green tea chiffon cake. The matcha green tea powder was a good grade, smelled fabulous and made my cake look delicious.

I also made a cup in the traditional way with the tea ceremony whisk, get past the grassy/leave taste, and I promise you that you can feel more alive and awake. Green tea has natural caffeine, unlike coffee when you reach the high the energy levels just goes back down. Where as matcha stays steady.
