Matcha: Superfood, Trend, or Both?
January 30, 2017
Another great thing about matcha is that its flavor pairs very well with chocolate, especially white and dark. It has a sweet, grassy taste that’s complemented by the sweet flavors of many drinks, cakes, chocolates, and cookies. In the store, we have a variety of different matcha products. The Macaron Café macarons that we sell come in a matcha flavor, which is delicious and lets the powder’s true flavor shine through. From Vosges, we have two matcha bars; one is a classic matcha with dark chocolate, and the other is a dark milk bar with the flavor of mint added. Cacao Sampaka and Cacao Market both make matcha white chocolates. The matcha powder turns the white chocolate into a beautiful green color, making these bars as beautiful as they are delicious. Marie Belle also makes a white hot chocolate powder that contains matcha, making a sweet and grassy drink with so many health benefits.
If you haven’t tried matcha and you like green tea, I highly recommend giving it a chance! Its flavor can be a little strong on its own, so trying it through another medium like chocolate is a great way to get a taste of it without being overwhelmed. It has so many health benefits; it can’t hurt to give it a try!
