Matcha is the finely ground powder of green tea leaves. Savored in Japan for thousands of years, matcha has made waves for its cancer-fighting and energy-boosting properties. You can drink it in teas or lattes, but don’t let your imagination stop with beverages. Matcha flavored ice cream is cool and calming, matcha shortbread makes an elegant and beautiful take on a buttery classic, and matcha meets its match with virtually any type of chocolate (bars, ganache, or truffles, to name a few!).
