I received a package from Mr & Mrs Tea, which contained one of the best tea products there is: matcha powder. This bright green powder can be used to make tea and matcha latte, but can also be used in various baked goods and desserts. I wanted to bring out that beautiful green, which is how I came up with the idea for these swirl cookies!

Mr & Mrs Tea

This tea-loving couple living in the Netherlands has started up a webshop to sell some of the best Chinese teas. The offer of said high-quality teas is nearly non existent here in the Netherlands, which is why it’s so cool! I came across their account on Instagram, which is filled with, guess what, Matcha pictures… 😉

I left a comment on one of their pictures, and that’s how we came in contact. Mrs Tea sent me an e-mail, asking me if I was interested in trying their product. Yes, please! Matcha is not easy to get here in the Netherlands, so I was super excited. I’d like to point out that even though I was gifted the Matcha, I am not required to write a blog post. This also means that I am not in any way influenced: I was just too excited and inspired to NOT write a blog about it!

I wanted to bake cookies but was afraid that the green colour would be lost once I baked them. This was totally not the case, as you can see on the picture! I decided to make swirl cookies so that the bright green colour was extra noticeable. Worked out pretty well, huh?
