There are so many ways to enjoy matcha salt from adding it to eggs to topping off chocolate truffles and brownies, sprinkling some over soups and good dusting over popcorn, and this is just to name a few. The matcha tea adds a beautiful delicate flavor that you just have to try.
I’m a “collector” of salt and spices. If you were to look in my cabinet you would either gasp with joy and proclaim, “oh my” or walk away out of sheer “What? you have got to be kidding me!”. For me, it’s therapy.
Making your own salt blend is so easy and take less than 5 minutes to create, it’s worth experimenting and coming up with your own concoction. I’m always experimenting with new flavors, new blends and learning as I go (with conclusions such as, oh yeah or … never mind, bin that).
I like to use sea salt or Himalayan salt in my blends. Primarily because of the flavor they lend, and secondly it’s cool and exotic. For this recipe, I used sea salt with the matcha tea. The green tea powder isn’t just for brewing tea and enjoy during the quiet of the day (if you have one of those heavenly moments), it also gives you all the health benefits when added to you’re sweet and savory dishes.
Be creative, blend your salts and give this easy Matcha Salt recipe a try.
It’s time to go green!
- 1/2 cup Sea Salt, fine or course ground (I prefer course)
- 1 Tbls Match Green Tea Powder
- Add both to a jar, put the lid on and shake to blend.
- Keep stored in airtight container at room temperature.
If you prefer a stronger Matcha taste, reduce the salt to 1/4 cup.
