Japanese Matcha Powder

Matcha - 抹茶 refers to finely-milled Japanese green tea. Recent years it has also come to be used to flavour and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodles, green tea ice cream and a variety of Japanese confectionery too. Other than Japanese cuisine and pastry, matcha powder is also used as flavouring in many Western-style chocolates, candy, and desserts such as cakes, pastries, cookies, pudding and etc.

I usually gets my Japanese Matcha powder Fairprice finest (Japanese ingredients section) or Istean. This type of Matcha powder is slightly more expensive when compared to those found in baking ingredients shop like Bake King, Phoon Huat and etc.  A small can of 40g cost about S$6+ but I feel it's worth the price when the end-products turns out to be good and worthy.

Below are some recipes using Matcha Powder which you might be interested to take a look.
