Ahh, matcha. Arguably one of Japan’s most popular worldwide exports. It is refreshing, aromatic, energising, and so ridiculously good for you that it might be more appropriate to change the well-known quote to “a cup of matcha a day keeps the doctor away”.
GREEN TEA ICE CREAM
Although ice cream is not normally associated with Japanese cuisine, green tea flavoured ice cream is a great dessert with a traditional Japanese twist. It is widely available in Japan and East Asia and is becoming more and more popular in the West too. A great colourful dessert to impress at any dinner party!
