Happy Matcha Day

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day (and our new Matcha — Green Tea Powder) we had an office-wide matcha bake-off. While baking with green tea isn’t specifically Irish, the delicious, bright-green treats made the day seem particularly festive. And the Irish are tea lovers at heart, after all — we’ve got our Irish Breakfast tea as proof of that!

We had so many fantastic goodies that it was almost hard to eat them all. Matcha is such a versatile ingredient and it was a delight to see how many desserts could be made. There were a few cakes: Vicky, in accounting, made a lemon pudding cake, Linda, one of our Customer Service Reps, made a pair of delicious round cakes with strawberries on top, I made a vanilla and matcha cake with coconut milk, and Julie, one of our Production Managers, made a fantastic multi-layered chocolate cake with matcha frosting.

India, our Graphics Coordinator made adorable and tasty cupcakes, while Tiffiny, Assistant to the Head of Operations, dusted some truffles with matcha for a kick of green tea and chocolate and also made some wonderful gluten-free matcha rice treats.
Everyone in the office, dressed in their best green, came and gathered around to taste. It was a fun way to relax, share, and celebrate our brand-new tea. Sláinte!
