Matcha makes a comeback

With its fresh, newly picked taste, matcha at this time of year is the perfect refreshing drink, and also an ingredient in desserts, cookies and ice cream. Matcha is made from the leaves of tea bushes that grow in shade, with only the finest buds hand-picked. The ingredient originated in China during the Sui Dynasty (AD 581-618) and was taken to Japan in 1191 by a Japanese monk. While it became an ordinary drink and food ingredient in Japan, few people in China drank it in the past centuries. Today, matcha drinks tend to be more Western-inspired, such as matcha latte, matcha hot chocolate and matcha milk. And drinking matcha tea is less popular in China than in Japan.

But more and more matcha dessert stores are opening here. Because of their elegant colour and mellow taste, and often coming in low-calorie options, matcha desserts are especially popular with women.
