What is Matcha?

Also known as “powdered tea”, matcha is green tea leaves that are grinded until they form into a fine powder. This powder does not need to be steeped or strained. Therefore, matcha will give the full effects of antioxidants, vitamins, and caffeine that a regular cup of green tea cannot offer.

The taste of matcha is uniquely strong. It will give an initial herbal, grass taste but will follow by a lingering sweetness. Even when added as an ingredient, the matcha powder will provide a lasting green tea taste.

This recipe offers Tea Zone’s Matcha Green Tea Powder as an added ingredient to Big Train’s Cookies ‘N Crème frappe. This will give a customer’s favorite treat an added caffeine bonus that will have them coming back for more.
