special equipment

  • hand mixer: the ones by kitchenaid are long-lasting. i recently upgraded to a cordless one. i also would recommend a more affordable option – a corded one (mine is still working after nearly a decade).
  • sieve: this is also a must when making matcha. using this ensures all the clumps are removed from the matcha powder.

tips

  • what are your favorite matcha powders? i love the ones from ippodo tea, matchabar, and tea people. they also must be ceremonial grade. i have tried culinary grade (great for baked goods), but it tastes horrible when used to make a drink like matcha latte.

did you make this recipe? i would love to see your creations! tag michelleqgbui on instagram and hashtag it #letsbake.
