Beneath the cherry blossom tree

The cherry blossoms Sakura starts blooming in Barcelona!  We are still in winter but near the spring. In Japan this season is called "Sankan Shion" (三寒四温), that means 3 days are cold, 4 days are warm. Today, we decided to take some photos with our little model under the blooming cherry blossom tree in order to remember this beautiful scene. She liked very much our Matcha Latte made with our organic Matcha. Our organic Matcha is ideal for those who wants to consume Matcha daily for his family.  Enjoy our Matcha in this beautiful season and enjoy coming beautiful spring!

Matcha Framboise Cake



For this recipe, we used Chlorella Matcha. At high heat, Matcha starts to die off, but due to chlorella, this retains Matcha's vibrant green color after baking.  Our Chlorella Matcha is Matcha blended with chlorella, a green alga that contains a high chlorophyll content, which gives a vivid green color to the culinary creations. Please do not add baking powder for this recipe - it is not necessary.

Ingredients:
- For Matcha sponge cake:
3 eggs L
85 g sugar
95gr flour
30 g of milk

400ml whipping cream + sugar
24 units of
framboise
