More matcha! Zendori matcha comes in gorgeous packaging. Even the box is entertaining. I love it when matcha comes in these little tins that have lids that pop up like Snack Pack from when I was a kid. Something about it just makes it seem so fresh when it's packaged this way.
Where have I been? You noticed I wasn't here, right? I'm going pretend like you did. Nothing is wrong, the truth is that work has been kicking my tea leaves and then I was attacked by turkeys. Or, I had Thanksgiving. Same thing! I even had to pack up my photo set up in order to make room for guests, but now I'm back and just a little behind on reviews.
Today's post is a Twofer. I had some matcha to review, and I had a battery operated frother to review, and it occurred to me that those two go well together! I have posted before about how I think people are intimidated by matcha, so every time I review one I try to prepare it in a different way. If you leave with nothing else after this post, please leave with the idea that you don't have to have a bamboo whisk and chawan to make matcha. it's fun if you do, but you can still have some great matcha with what you have at home. Today I am making my matcha in a rice bowl that I picked up at a thrift store for a dime.
I know what you are thinking. Why in the world would a person use ceremonial grade matcha in a smoothie? I hear you. Concern acknowledged. But here's the thing, I only have ceremonial grade matcha around, and I wanted a smoothie. So work with me here for a minute.
Matcha is everywhere these days. Matcha Kit Kats, matcha lattes, I'm sure there will be a matcha Oreo if there isn't already. Until this point my experience with matcha was mainly with flavored types and I had never had a ceremonial grade of it, so I jumped at the chance to try some.
