A refreshing change from the coffee bar iced lattes, this chilled matcha latte is the perfect drink when you need a cool pick me up. White recommends using Matcha Source Gotcha Matcha.

2 ounces hot water or milk
1 cup crushed ice
6 ounces milk (cow, almond, soy or rice)
Fresh ice for serving

White chocolate green tea ganache is an unexpected but very welcome frosting for cakes, cupcakes, or sweet quickbreads. You can find this ganache slathered on butternut squash cupcakes in the Matcha Source e-cookbook.
3.5 ounces best quality white chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup cream, divided
2 teaspoons matcha
Usucha tea leaves*
1. Start out by chilling the mixing bowl and the beaters.
2. Melt white chocolate and 1/4 cup of cream in a double boiler or heat-proof bowl situated in a pan of simmering water (bowl should not touch water), stirring continually. Remove from heat and cool completely.
3. Put the rest of the cream into the chilled mixing bowl. Sift matcha into the cream and whisk until thoroughly blended. Beat until beater marks just begin to show.
4. Add the cooled white chocolate mixture and continue beating until soft peaks form. Be careful not to over-beat as it will turn to butter.
5. Spread over the tops of cakes, cupcakes, or sweet quickbreads. For garnish, add a few pumpkin seeds and sprinkle with crushed usucha tea leaves.
*Usucha tea leaves are a high quality tea in the form of fine thin flakey tea leaves used to accent sweet or savory food dishes.
