Matcha and Honey Simple Syrup

Another matcha recipe that doesn’t make it into tea. 

Matcha+Honey+Simple+Syrup

Ah matcha, the Japanese green tea powder that was once reserved for sacred and special occasions. Now every food and mommy blogger from here (wherever “here” is for you) to Tokyo has bastardized this once special ingredient. Mixing it into everything from cupcakes to dog treats. So I decided to jump on this bandwagon of cultural appropriation through food and make my own matcha recipe.

Matcha

I’m all for exploring other cultures through food and regional ingredients, but this matcha thing has gone too far people. We get it, you enjoy mixing some into your kale and unhappiness smoothies every morning, but that doesn’t mean you get to put it in everything. Once the TODAY show highlights an ingredient, it’s no longer relevant to food culture, the ingredient has reached maximum cultural saturation.
