Matcha tea

Some people love matcha tea. Also many people say that they don’t like matcha tea because of specific bitter taste.

Well let’s talk about bitterness. Did you know that level of bitterness is dependent on quality of the tea? Authentic, high quality matcha tea is made of only top sweet and soft baby leafs, that are vibrant green and contain amino acids which gives matcha a unique flavour and therefore reduce the bitterness.

How to pick a good matcha powder?

  • Matcha that was grown and processed in region Uji, Japan is the best quality matcha, because of the environment.
  • As I said before the greener and more vibrant colour of the matcha, the higher quality.
  • Choice always ORGANIC MATCHA. Well, you are actually consuming the tea leaves with matcha and because of this I think that organic should be the way to go.

I’m absolutely matcha lover. I add matcha powder to my smoothies, cakes, I love drinking matcha latte and eating matcha ice creams !

To this cake I add here only 1/2 tsp of good quality organic matcha powder. Why? Because my son loves eating my cakes. He’s almost 3 years old, and as we all know children should not consume any teas.

This raw vegan matcha cake is quick and easy to make. Also if you don’t like matcha tea you can choose any other your favourite superfood, for example blue spirulina ❤️

THIS CAKE IS:

  • gluten free
  • vegan
  • dairy free
  • sugar free
  • raw cake
  • easy to make
  • soft cake
  • and delicious
