As a powder, matcha easily incorporates into countless recipes. If you’re looking for a twist on a classic cookie, muffin, cake, ice cream, pudding, oatmeal, smoothie, salad dressing, (practically anything) recipe, capture the heart of umami by infusing Matcha. Most culinary matcha you might find on the market is an excuse for lower quality or poorly stored matcha, but you'll find Mizuba is the go-to for fresh, strong, and delicious matcha for all your favorite recipes.
A note on the word culinary: most "culinary" matcha you might find on the American market, unfortunately, has been used to designate "low-quality," or even powdered tea that is not truly matcha! This is not the case with Mizuba! We take the utmost care to ensure the matcha you receive is the best of the best.
Mizuba's culinary organic matcha is still from Uji, shade-grown, and traditionally stone ground just like our ceremonial matcha. However, the tencha used to make Mizuba's culinary is harvested from leaves a little down the stem. These leaves are stronger, and therefore produce a stronger, yet still smooth flavor, for you to enjoy through whatever you add the matcha to.
Flavor profile: Mizuba's culinary matcha is a full-bodied, well-balanced flavor experience. We found that it exhibits a lush creaminess, which is balanced out by a savory, grassy sweetness. Pairs especially well with honey, milk and alternative milk, chocolate, jammy red fruits (strawberry, cherry, raspberry), all citrus, mint, lavender, coconut, anise, ginger, almond, and vanilla flavors.
