Matcha blueberries whole-wheat pancakes
One evening I checked my email to see that I won a six month supply of green tea by Green tea house, I was so so delighted 😁 couldn't wait until I got it.
I met Martin from Green Tea house at an event I went to, bloggers event couple of months ago. They had set up a stall for green tea tasting and I also got Organic Japanese sencha tea in my goodie bag.
Green tea house organic premium matcha is certified organic by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and fisheries of Japan and is grown with only natural organic fertilizers with no added chemicals or pesticides. Many other Green tea companies harvest their green teas two to four times per year they lose their taste and aroma, but Green tea house harvest their green tea only once per year.
The health benefits of matcha is absolutely amazing, just to mention a few
- Matcha tea not only provides vitamins and minerals but it is very rich in antioxidants
- Boots metabolism
- Energy booster
- Anti aging
I drink matcha just on its own or at times I like to add to my recipes. Love that lush green color. I made matcha nice cream now I thought why not add it to pancakes and it turned out so good. Let us get to the recipe below. ;)
