How did you first hear about matcha, how long have you been using it?

I have always loved matcha desserts and drinks! Coming from an Asian background, I have frequently been exposed to many matcha products. So when I was experimenting with recipes for the bakery, matcha was one of the top flavours to include on the menu.

How are you using matcha on your menu?

We use it in cupcakes, chocolates, mousses, panna cottas and cakes.

Have you noticed an increasing demand for matcha lately?

Sales have been very steady.

Do you have a favourite matcha dish?

I love matcha bubble tea!  I know it's not a dish, but it’s my favourite.  Otherwise if I have to choose, I would pick green tea mochi ice-cream.

Anything else you’d like to share about your bakery?

We always strive to be different, offering exciting new products. So check us out!

Thank you Michelle. Your desserts, especially the matcha ones, look amazing and luscious. We wish all the best and hope to see more matcha sweets on your menu.
