    Is that the powdered ceremonial green tea?

    I haven't tried it in baking or at all. I was afraid it would be bitter. Is it good?

    I don't have caffeine, so I've not tried matcha. I've heard it's quite a strong flavour though, and can be 'grassy' if there's too much.

    it is! I guess it really depends on your personal taste, it can taste a little bitter (again that depends on how you make it) and it's not overly sweet, but I think it's delicious!

    I found this recipe online and it worked fine with me :) Here it is:

    Doesn't the cake look fantastic? ♥
