This simple white cake recipe features our NEW TEA…RASPBERRY MATCHA! It’s the highest grade of organic Matcha blended with raspberry extract. The refreshing raspberry note adds a lovely natural sweetness.
New to cooking with MATCHA? It’s easy! Matcha is a premium Japanese Green Tea that is stone ground into a fine powder, making it very easy to blend into smoothies, batters, frosting etc.
It offers 10 times the antioxidants of regular green tea, it increases metabolism, strengthens immune system, & helps prevent cancer.
This Raspberry Matcha Cake will be a lovely addition to your Mother’s Day celebration, and it pairs perfectly with tea too!

~MATCHA FONDUE RECIPE~
12 oz white chocolate chips
1 TBS Matcha powder
Place white chocolate chips in double boiler over medium-low heat. (If you don’t have a double boiler, fill a large saucepan halfway with water and place a smaller saucepan inside that, so that the bottom of the small pan is submerged in water).
Once white chocolate begins to melt sift in the matcha and stir until well combined.
Dip your favorite treats in the matcha fondue then place on a wax-paper lined baking sheet.
Place tray in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes or until white chocolate hardens.
A Green Teahouse favorite house blend, a mixture of Raspberry & Cocoa Pu-erh. It tastes just like a decadent truffle! Pu-erh tea is a great tea for boosting your metabolism, detoxifying, & lowering blood pressure. It is also low in caffeine, it has about 3-8% the caffeine of coffee, so it can be enjoyed throughout the day.
