    Cooking with Matcha

    Matcha is increasingly appreciated as an ingredient in cooking. It can be used in a number of ways in both savouryand sweet recipes–its subtle and refreshing flavour complements and enhances other ingredients without masking them.

    Matcha, a descendent of whisked tea

    Introduced by Japanese monks in the 12thcentury, Matcha is prepared by crushing the leaves to a powder as fine as flour, then whisking them into hot water in a bowl. Very stimulating due to its high theine content, matcha was the perfect accompaniment to meditation, helping practitioners to remain alert and focused for hours on end. Perhaps for the same reasons, Samurai warriors began drinking Matcha in the 13th century.

    A ceremonial tea

    The practice of whisking tea remained firmly rooted in Japanese society, where it became one of the pillars of the Cha No Yu, the tea ceremony. This ceremony formalises the connections between tea, Buddhism and the different tea schools. This led Matcha to gain a new symbolic and mystical significance, and the tea gradually became a national treasure.
