What: Deconstructed Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream
About the dish: First, I started with Ben & Jerry’s vanilla ice cream as the base. Then I used one of my favorite powdered green tea shipped from Shizuoka Japan, called Lupicia Original Blend Matcha powder. Its about $16 for 100grams and can be purchased directly from their website here. I then made a concentrated tea mixture to sit on the bottom of the cup, then a green tea syrup for the top, and finally I finished it with straight powder. The bitter green tea balances perfectly with the rich sweet ice cream and is one of my favorite deserts thats quick & simple to prepare.
