Jul 4th 2021

Matcha tea powder is one of our favorite superfoods to use in cooking.

Matcha powder is made from ground green tea leaves are grown in the shade, which created that mesmerizing green color. It lends itself well to treats like cookies, tarts, cakes, and even croissants, as well as smoothies and refreshing beverages. We love its beautiful bright hue and subtle green tea flavor. Sunfood Matcha Powder is pure organic matcha.

Matcha powder adds the most beautiful color to desserts.

Did someone say Matcha Donuts? These are as beautiful as they are mesmerizing and delicious. Matcha has that effect on every dish. Not only does it make for a beautiful frosting, but we also love the benefits of no-jitters energy of this green superfood to go along with the healthy-ish baked donuts.
