Four Fun Matcha Cookie Meals to Try
What is Matcha?
Matcha is a finely ground powder of specially grown green tea leaves, which are traditionally consumed in East Asia. The green tea plants used for matcha are shade-grown for three to four weeks before harvest; the stems and veins are removed during processing.
The practice of consuming matcha was popularised over 900 years ago. However, the matcha green tea has taken recent generations by storm.
