The first time i did try Matcha Green Tea was during a trip to Kuala Lumpur, I was going to have a Café Latte but ended up with a very nice Matcha, recommended by the shop owner. That was the very beginning of my Matcha adventure, and the following days i was drinking Matcha in stead of coffee, and I enjoyed every sip of it.
After returning to Denmark, I was searching for places to get the Matcha powder, and at that time it was not very easy to find, so i ended up ordering some from a tea shop in Singapore, later i have found some places to get the powder around here, but it is very expensive compared to the one i use to order abroad, or take with me home when i am out there.
During my search i also came across a lot of websites, telling about the benefits about consuming this green superfood. What i found out are that Matcha Tea is an easy and simple way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet.
Most of the Matcha i tried in Malaysia was Matcha Latté, so what i have been trying to do, are to find the one recipe that suits my own taste, and after trying a lot of different recipes, i modified some of those to fit my own taste because i don't drink milk, and what i came up with are this:
Matcha Green Tea Frappé with Coconut Whip
