Matcha: A Lifestyle Guide
Jessica Flint and Anna Kavaliunas wrote this be-all end-all guide to matcha to cover everything you’d ever want to know about the incredibly health-beneficial green tea powder—from its historical origins in Uji, on the outskirts of Kyoto, Japan, to its clean sweep of us wellness-obsessed devotees in the Western world.
Packed with recipes for drinks, sweet and savory dishes, and even cocktails, this beautifully designed, coffee-table-worthy book takes you from matcha 101 to myth-debunking. For example: if you believe matcha tastes bitter, you’ve just been served some poor-quality matcha—the real deal should be a blend of sweet and umami. You’ll also learn why, exactly, the high-quality stuff makes a major difference; how to have your own proper traditional matcha tea ceremony (required: clean white socks); and plenty of matcha-ordering etiquette, as well as the best matcha bars to try.
