Matcha is powdered green tea which originated in Japan in the 12th century and features in the globally renowned art of the tea ceremony. It has a strong connection with Zen culture both psychologically and physiologically.

Discover Matcha Desserts Box was created for those of you who would like to enjoy matcha in a modern, casual style. I selected ingredients which are not easily obtainable from local grocery shops. 

PureChimp Super Tea matcha is a Japanese ceremonial-grade cultivated in the Kyoto region. I especially selected PureChimp matcha with its fresh aroma which makes a refreshing sauce with any kind of milk. You could also enjoy a cup of traditional matcha tea by simply adding hot water and whisking it (we have bamboo whisks for sale.)

Contents:

  • 4×25g nest of Konjac noodles
  • 100g Glutinous rice powder
  • One tin of cooked Aduki Beans
  • 20g of PureChimp Super Tea matcha 
  • 2×2 tablespoons of corn starch
  • 100g of Belgian white chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons of Chia seeds

 

Recipe A: Konjac noodles in matcha flavoured milk

This is a modified version of Kuzukiri, a traditional Japanese dessert. The combination of Konjac noodles, matcha and Aduki paste would make it a superb antioxidant dessert.

Recipe B: Daifuku dumplings

Daifuku is a rice dumpling often filled with Aduki paste. You can use the same paste as made in recipe A or alternatively use the creamy matcha chocolate as the filling. The dumpling itself is called Gyuhi, a soft rice cake, and can be enjoyed on its own.

 Recipe C: Creamy matcha chocolate

In modern Japan, people enjoy matcha in various desserts. Among them, matcha ice cream and matcha-scented white chocolate would be the king and queen of the desserts. I have devised a quick, and easy & simple way to make matcha chocolate. Once you get accustomed to the method, you can adjust the amount of matcha powder to suit your own tastes.

Recipe D: Matcha latte

An introduction to drinking matcha for those who like sweeter and creamier tastes. You could use the same type of milk chosen for recipe A or try making it with other type of milk.
