  1. I am a big fan of green tea, but I am still trying to get my taste buds to accept matcha which has some bitter sensation to it. I really like how naturally green the drink appears – just to remind us of the power of antioxidant.

    How do you usually make your matcha? Some people say that they taste better with foamy layers on the top. I never seem to be able to get that.

    • I always prefer to make my matcha the traditional way which I have detailed in the preparation page of my site. After time you will acquire the taste of true match including the foamy layers on top. The foam gives it the extra something of taste. Also, you can drink your matcha with sweets like biscuits, cookies etc. During ancient times some priests also drank matcha with sweets because of the bitter taste.

So, I’ll keep all of these points in mind. For better health in 2017!
