Matcha is the Latest Culinary Craze

Matcha is the latest food craze you might not know about, but one taste and you'll be hooked. This ancient, finely milled green powder has been a staple in the Japanese tea world for decades but only recently started to gain popularity in the U.S. It can be used in pastries, cocktails, smoothies and even ice cream. Culinary matcha is a lower grade powder typically made of leaves that are lower on the matcha branch.
