Finally found my matcha!
After much searching I have finally found some matcha. (Thanks asian grocery store tofu shop!)
One teeny tiny tin set me back $6.99 but it was worth it!
So whats so great about matcha? Um everything! But seriously its very finely powdered green tea, no bags here ladies, tea goes straight in the bowl and just add hot water (not boiling, too hot and the tea will be bitter!), then whisk with your authentic japanesse bamboo whisk. (One day I shall find you bamboo whisk!) You're not just drinking an infusion its every bit of the tea as well, so you get ALL the goodness. mmmmm green tea goodness.
I am supposed to be doing housework, bugger that.
