Matcha in Australia

Welcome back to Kenko Tea’s  interview series with our fabulous stockists, who are creating amazing recipes with matcha green tea!

Matcha green tea has become more popular everywhere in Australia these days. So, we decided to change our series “Matcha in Melbourne” to “Matcha in Australia”. And so, for this week, we have the special guest from Sydney with us, The Health Emporium.
