I grew up in the state of Michigan, and I was a University of Michigan fan all my life. As you might imagine, I also graduated from the University of Michigan, too. Go Blue!!
Well, we wolverines were rivals with Michigan State spartans… yes, indeed we were! Except, I liked Michigan State so long as they weren’t playing us. :)
Well, in spite of that image above, I’m making a tea for Michigan State fans.
I thought them when I was mixing it together. It’s matcha green tea and white tea. Those are their colors: green and white. Nuff’ said.
By the way, speaking of matcha green tea…
do you have a copy of my book Matcha Cookbook?
It has over 50 great recipes
featuring health boosting matcha green tea powder!
Recipe: Michigan State Matcha Green Tea
- 1 cup spring water
- 1 tablespoon organic white tea leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
In a small pot, heat the water to 180 degrees F on your stove.
Using a French press, put the hot water along with the white tea leaves in it. Let them steep for 4 minutes. (If you have another way to brew loose tea leaves, then by all means do it how you like.)
While it’s steeping, sift the matcha green tea powder into a mug. Pour the now-brewed white tea into the mug and manually whisk (or use an electric whisk) until frothy.
Update: I found a new matcha that I’m in love with.
It’s smooth, pure, and delicious. Pique Tea Matcha!
