Recipe from Tea A Magazine

I created a Martini drink in 2005 called Persian Lime Martin(i). Here is a Green Tea Martini drink recipe (Tea A Magazine, summer 2011) by Cynthia Gold:

  • 2 ounces Green Tea Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce peach schnapps
  • 1 dried peach / apricot, or 1 teaspoon dried cranberries, for garnish
  1. Shake the vodka and peach schnapps vigorously in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  3. Garnish with the dried fruit.

(TeaMag.com, summer 2011, issue #66, page 12.)

Please send us tips on suppliers of green tea vodka! ;)

Maccha Cake

I thought we should continue the Matcha thread, so here is a recipe for a cake with Matcha and Sencha green tea. The author of Tea, Exotic Flavors and Aromas, Lydia Gautier, has used the “Maccha” spelling, so I will stick with this in this post. You could find the instructions for the recipe on page 32 (The Tea of Scholars: A Fresh, Plant Liquor). The recipe is invented by Tea Master Kazuyo Ishii-Coineau of the Chajin tea salon in Paris.

Maccha Cake (serves 6)

  • 3/4 ounce / 20 grams of Maccha (Ryori)
  • 5 ounces / 140 grams of superfine sugar
  • 2 good teaspoons of Sencha tea
  • 3 1/2 ounces / 100 grams of butter (at room temperature)
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 3 ounces / 80 grams of wheat flour
  • 1 teaspon of baking power
  • 1 pinch of salt

Do you have a recipe with Maccha?

Janine’s energy boosting matcha drink

It’s Saturday Tea Party, today featured by Janine Quatrevingt and her energy boosting matcha drink.

Janine says that she and her husband:

were inspired by a tapioca tea drink in the China District of Manhattan. Matcha powder itself is very interesting. In addition to plentiful antioxidants there is something in the tea which provides a consistant energy boost (unlike the caffeine spike from coffee) – elevating your mood and energy levels as you go through the day. The ginger touch was our own, but the rest was a re-creation of the tapioca drink.

Janine and her coworkers are drinking this beverage every morning to keep up their energy boost through out the day.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon green tea matcha powder (ie big spoonful)
1 teaspoon vanilla paste (or vanilla essence… the real kind!)
1 tablespoon honey (temper to taste)
1 tablespoon fresh crushed ginger (optional)
1 pint soymilk
1 tablespoon water at room temperature
crushed ice

Instructions:
Make a paste with matcha, vanilla paste, honey and water. Add the ginger and stir in the
soymilk. Add crushed ice to two tall glasses and pour matcha mixture on top. Drink and
enjoy! Alternatively throw all ingredients into a really good blender for a lovely matcha-ccino.

I look forward to upcoming recipes in the future from my dear foodie friend Janine.

Below is our process of making the drink:

The green drink tasted great and we recommend it as a power starter in the morning!

Do you think Popeye would like it?
