    Halloween Tea Party

    I love mystery parties. A Halloween tea party is conducive to this type of get together. It is so easy to prepare the food ahead of time, and as the hostess you can still participate. The fun part is, you can make it as simple or elaborate as you want it to be.

    Your guests will love the intrigue, the mystery and the anticipation of who dunnit… Read the full article here

    Matcha Tea

    Matcha tea is a powered green tea from Japan. Instead of steeping the tea leaves and removing them as you would with regular tea, matcha leaves are powered and consumed. Therefore, when you drink matcha tea, you're getting not only an incredibly rich earthy taste, but between 4 and 10 times the antioxidant benefit (depending on how much you use).

    Because of the antioxidant benefits, I use matcha in my morning smoothie routine.

    Matcha Green Tea Frappe, about one teaspoon of powered matcha, a cup of milk, add to a blender with a cup of ice and a tablespoon of sugar or honey. Blend for one minute, and enjoy. Note the bright green color: matcha can be used as a natural food coloring for frostings, pudding, or whatever you want.

    Green Tea Cookies

    These cookies are a matcha-infused shortbread style, a traditional butter cookie touched with green color and this popular Japanese flavor.

    1 lb Unsalted butter, softened
    5 oz Powdered sugar,
    1 lb 4 oz All purpose flour,
    1 oz Green tea (matcha) powder,
    1 oz Salt
    1 teaspoon cookie cutter

    Sift flour, salt and green tea powder together. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. We recommend using an electric mixer at speed two (or medium speed) for 8-10 minutes. Add flour mixture, by keeping mixture speed low. Do not overmix; it should take only about 1 minute.

    Scrape down the dough, take it out of the mixer and flatten it. Wrap tightly, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Roll out dough to a 1/4" thickness. Cut out with cookie cutter.

    Butter a cookie sheet. Lay the cookies out on the sheet and chill for 30 minutes. After the cookies have been chilled, bake at 325 degree for 15 minutes.

    These are a great compliment to matcha tea.
