My weekends are for catching up at home and doing some actual cooking. Usually during the week (even in summer…whats up with being so busy?!?) we eat on the run and it really bothers me. Anyhow; so I got this magazine at the grocery store this week and in it there was a whole article about matcha which is powdered tea and the point is that you are drinking the actual tea leaves rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. I’ll admit I was intrigued and kinda got hooked on the concept right away.
I am loving this great Matcha Starter Set from Jade Leaf Matcha and I urge you to check it out! Now clearly you will need a mug and the actual matcha tea but this kit comes with an aerolatte electric matcha whisk, a stainless steel measuring scoop and a stainless steel tea sifter. The step by step instructions is very easy to read and you will be on your way to enjoying some healthy ceremonial matcha in no time! And guys, you don’t have to stop at tea – there are other great recipes right on their website to create other cool matcha treats like bath salts, pancakes, smoothies and more!
I urge you to check out more about this Japanese tradition – I am getting so into it!
