The weekend is a great time to get together with family and friends, perhaps with a BBQ on the beach or a
picnic at the park. And a cake is always the perfect item to share at these gatherings.

Today we’d love to introduce you to a deliciously creamy and smoothMatcha and Lime Cake with Strawberry and Coconutfrom the super talented Ida Ginman from @mymessyeatery.

Ida is a 21-year old girl who was born and raised in Finland. She lives in Sydney where she has a big interest in vegetarian and vegan foods. She loves to get creative in the kitchen whenever she has time to spare - check out her creations:

Ida’s recipe creates a sugar free and dairy free cake using nothing but raw and vegan ingredients. This means it doesn’t need to be baked, making it easy to prepare for a party.

The secret ingredient - avocados - are an excellent source of vitamin E, omega-3 and other nutrients that also gives the cake a creamy, smooth texture.

Ok, let’s just get down to business.

Lovely gift set and matcha tea :)

This is a lovely Matcha Tea Gift set which I have used at home and even at the workplace (also used this when facilitating an ikebana session) introducing others about matcha. As some people have mentioned, I recommend using 80C hot water as I was quite impressed with the intricate flavours of the matcha (freshly cut grass, with a touch a bitterness that does not overpower the palate). I appreciate Kenko’s efforts from the processing to the manufacturing and packaging of the ceremonial grade matcha. Thank you.

Best match in the world

Brilliant matcha, I have a teapot daily

Great first experience

This was my first time trying out matcha tea and I stumbled on Kenko tea quite by accident. And I have to say it has been a great first experience. The guide provided helps in creating a unique matcha tea experience. Looking forward to many more such experiences. Thank you Kenko tea!

First order

I review a few companies that sell Matcha, yours is the one I chossed as I found more description of the product and helpful videos.

Love the presentation the tissue paper and the stickers gave to the product a very good introduction.
Drom now on I will keep buying from you my Matcha.

Thank you

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.
