Green Tea Frappuccino  

Revised:  I drank this in the SoHo District of London.  It was so cool!  Tapioca (optional--white or black) is what is at the bottom.  They topped mine with brown sugar.  The basic mix is:   dry milk powder, matcha powder, white cane sugar.  Blend well and keep air tight until use. 5% Matcha powder, 10% Sugar, 40% powdered milk.  Add 6 heaping teaspoons to 8 ounces of hot water--mix well and pour over ice.   A maraschino cherry is also great for color on top.  Mabel's Recipe:  I steam 6 ounces of milk or soy milk in the micro using the plastic bullet.  I then add 1/10 an ounce of Matcha Powder and 1/20 of an ounce of stevia and blend until frothy.

 

Delicate Matcha Powder has a rich sweet taste and is naturally pure . It contains rich in vitamin C, E and many minerals. It also contains an important element of Polyphenols, Although it is possible to use Matcha in a wide variety of recipes, it is important to remember that it originates from Japanese tea ceremony. Therefore, it is a very special type of tea.


  Matcha - "Green Tea Cappuccino"
Optional - Warm a Japanese tea bowl or a cappuccino bowl with hot water, empty and dry the bowl.
Place teaspoon of Matcha into a Japanese bowl, Add 1/3 cup 60 degree water, Use a bamboo whisk or a teaspoon to whip the powder to green froth, Drink it right away, in three or four sips,
(If it is sipped leisurely, the green tea powder will settle to the bottom and the tea won't be as pleasurable.)

Serving Tea

  • Good quality water and proper brewing time are essential for a flavorful cup of tea. Herbal teas need to be infused a good 20 minutes to reap the most medicinal benefits.  If you are using fresh herbs, you will need four times the amount of dry tea for a cup.  You can then gently warm it back up.  Most teas require one heaping teaspoon per cup.
  •  Start with a preheated pot or cup (simply fill your teapot or cup with very hot water and let it stand for a moment).
  • Use fresh cold water. In areas with poor tap water, use bottled or filtered water. Never use water from the hot water from the tap. Let tap water run for a few seconds until it is quite cold; this ensures that the water aerated (full of oxygen) to release the full flavor of the tea leaves.
  • Bring water to a rolling boil. Don't let it boil too long, as it will boil away the flavor releasing oxygen and results in a flat tasting cup of tea. Pour boiling water on tea leaves or tea bag.
  • Brew 3 to 5 minutes (for green teas, water should be a bit cooler and only steep for one to three minutes.)
