This Cooking-Grade Matcha is specifically blended for culinary purposes.
People often mistakenly believe that better or more expensive grades of Matcha are the best to use for Matcha-based recipes. While true for drinking, this belief is not the case for cooking. A good Cooking-Grade Matcha has a stronger tea flavor than the drinking grade. This allows the Matcha flavor to shine though even if mixed with other ingredients. Although most would consider it slightly too bitter for traditional drinking, Cooking-Grade is best suited for making Matcha flavored desserts and beverages such as cookies, cakes, smoothies, and lattes.
Aiya Matcha is grown and produced in Nishio city in Aichi prefecture. Nishio has been known the world over as the cradle of excellent Matcha for more than 800 years.
Each 100g (3.5oz) bag is good for a number of recipes.
