Ways To Use Matcha
Because Matcha is a kind of tea that is traditionally ground into a fine powder, it can be used in a wide variety of ways, producing incredible results in terms of flavour, colour and popularity. Products like ice-cream, chocolate, milk/yoghurt-based drinks are particularly popular, as are the extensive uses for matcha in the catering industry, from matcha cappuccinos to matcha smoothies.

The most popular use of Matcha in chocolate is based on white chocolate. The color and taste of Matcha unfolds to its full taste. The result is a great green color with excellent taste. For milk chocolate, the combination of Matcha with other ingredients is in the foreground. When combined with dark chocolate, the delicate taste of Matcha tea is usually masked therefore the Matcha content needs to be adjusted with a higher percentage.
