You might know matcha as a highly caffeinated, grass-green tea—but if you’ve been limiting your matcha intake to the confines of your coffee cup, you are missing out.

In drink form, matcha is characterized by a slightly astringent and sweet note—the sort of thing that swiftly kicks you in the back of the throat before mellowing out into a smooth, creamy flavor. But when matcha is added as an ingredient in a baking recipe, this tea creates an earthy, slightly vegetal harmony that rounds out the final product’s predominantly sweet flavor. And since matcha is sold as a dusty powder, it blends easily into any dry ingredients and wet ingredients alike. This makes it easy to experiment—the possibilities (cookies! crème brûlée!) are endless—but here are 9 recipes to get you started.
