When our founders Nic Davidson and Sarah Holloway first experienced the ancient matcha tea ceremony in Japan and confessed to eating a bunch of Green tea cookies, we laughed for a while — until we finally tried them for ourselves. We love the aroma of the matcha powder and these cookies were no exception.
These bite-sized cookies are delicate and soft, with a toasty matcha taste that can’t be beat. They’re great plain, but even better when paired with a matcha latte.
With Matcha Maiden, sending packages of green tea powder in boxes to your doorstep, trying this green tea cookies recipe has never been easier. Consisting of pure green tea leaves stone-ground into a fine but densely nutritious bright green powder, our Matcha is Japanese certified organic and filled with so much green goodness that it has up to 137 times the antioxidants and 10 times the nutritional equivalent of regular green tea.
What better way to satiate your cravings for something sweet than with healthy, nutritious and fresh green tea cookies. They also make the perfect return gift for all occasions.
