Use the Right Matcha!
When cooking with matcha, it’s important to work with a culinary grade matcha. At My Matcha Life™, our Foodie’s Culinary Grade Matcha is ideal for matcha lattes, smoothies, baking, and many other cooking applications. Foodie’s Matcha is made from second harvest tea leaves, providing a nice balance of nutrients—especially catechin antioxidants—and a strong green tea flavor.
