Our “Cooking Matcha” is popular for people who drink matcha daily. You can, of course, use it for cooking and baking. This matcha is a less expensive way of enjoying matcha every day. It is made from first picking tencha and is good in smoothies, lattes, as well as when used for cooking. If you want to drink it as a matcha tea, you might want to use a strainer as it tends to lump.
