Ma-Ma-Ma-Matcha

Hi hi everyone! 

Today I enjoyed a cup of Matcha and am excited to show off the pictures from this special occasion! 🙂 I recently purchased a can of green tea powder from Whole Foods and had a traditional Japanese bamboo tea whisk from Teavana that I’ve been waiting to use.

My first attempt was rather messy, but have 29 more servings of matcha left to become a pro with… 😉

 After hearing about my failed mochi attempt my swim instructor bought me some Japanese goodies – green tea Pocky, green tea Kit Kat, Nestle Aero – green tea flavored, another green tea crisp and strawberry daifuku which is basically mochi with something other than red bean paste inside. ^///^ The consistency of the daifuku was so much smoother than mine! I wasn’t even close. *tear* I’m going to leave mochi making to the professionals from now on.

Thanks for reading!
