I managed to get out of bed early enough this morning to do a little wedding ritual for a friend who got married today on the other side of the country. Mr. J promised me shopping for the last ingredient for green tea cakes, "matcha" (green tea powder). We journeyed to the Stash tea store and paid far too much money for a few ounces of green tea powder and a bag of red rooibos tea (but I got a free container!).
The tea cakes turned out very nice. It's my new favourite dessert. The green tea powder gives it a very faint flavour; if you didn't know it was there, you might not pick up on it. These are very dense little tea cakes, and I am looking forward to enjoying some tonight with my new tea and the latest copy of combat handguns magazine.
