Matcha: The Green Tea Super-food

Matcha: The Green Tea Super-food

Whilst we normally favour drinking Zing Green Tea the traditional way, using whole tea-leaves, we’re always keen to explore new and exciting ways to enjoy tea.

Matcha is a delicious super-food, made entirely of ground up green tea leaves. This trendy powder is making its way into all sorts of recipes, from healthy slices to lattes! Our favourites, however, are the amazing range of Matcha desserts.

If you’re a sweet tooth and tend to reach for something less than healthy in the afternoons, why not try these Matcha Dark Chocolate Bars?
