    • It’s such a great item! xo

  • I’m completely green tea obsessed (like at least five cups a day) and have read a couple posts on matcha lately, so I’m definitely interested in giving it a try! My only worry is that since the powder is actually left in the tea, won’t it taste kind of powdery? xx

    • Hi Jenni, it is true if you leave the tea in the cup for awhile the powder will eventually settle to the bottom. By sifting it before you whisk it, however, you can get a much finer powder that will dissolve more easily. Also, when drinking matcha in the traditional style, you typically drink a smaller amount than a regular cup of tea (about 2-3 oz) so it doesn’t sit very long.

    • I was worried about this as well Jenni but the sifter really makes the powder quite fine and the whisk does an even better job at smoothing out the tea. I hope you give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚ If it helps I love green tea and now matcha! xo

  • Yes! I love matcha-flavoured anything though, to be honest because I love all Japanese desserts and so many of them incorporate matcha in them ๐Ÿ™‚ matcha sponge cake… soft serve and the list goes on yum yum! I really want to try making some matcha waffles (still have to dust off my waffle iron after moving it from home ha) or pancakes….

    • Matcha sponge cake??? YUM. haha and I’m the exact same way! I always want waffles but oy I have to track down my waffle maker first. Thanks for stopping by love! xo

  • My favourite thing about matcha? COLOUR. Call me shallow, but that was a number one thing that pulled me in its direction ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially when it comes to bakes!

    • Haha not shallow at all! It really is such a gorgeous color ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love little matcha cookies I’m always seeing on Pinterest. xo

  • I’m with you on feeling late to the bandwagon… always… But I LOVE matcha too. And I really love me some coffe, but his may be overtaking that love which is a big step. I think I’ll need to check out that kit for sure.

    • Don’t worry you are not alone. Zen monks started drinking matcha in Japan to aid with their meditation in the year 1191 so the western world has been slow in general to to appreciate this type of tea =)

      • Thank goodness it is not just me! I love that you provide a way to make this tea at home. That will definitely help out my wallet ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That is a HUGE step! haha Coffee drinkers love their coffee. Pumeli is my favorite place to get teas from these days so I hope you get try them out pretty girl ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Absolutely! Pumeli has such gorgeous gift baskets I’m sure your momma would love anything from them. xo

    I love matcha green tea! Trader Joe’s do an inexpensive one, but the Pumeli kit looks elaborate and like a relaxing ritual! Lovely photos!

    • It really is! I love how they give me everything at once so I’m not having to scramble and find something that kind of works. Thanks for your lovely comment Jen! xo

  • I have never been a coffee or tea person but I am really curious about this kind of tea, especially because it’s so healthy for you.

    • I love that it’s something that you can easily transfer into recipes for those that aren’t big tea fans ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you try it out! xo

  • I’m such a tea person, this is definitely for me x

  • This is so neat! I love tea, and try to drink it daily, but I’m a devoted coffee drinker, so sometimes tea doesn’t make the daily cut!
