The Matcha tea has become one of the favorite products in the West, partly because of its succulent flavor and the benefits it provides to your body. Originally from Japan, matcha tea is the selective spraying of green tea leaves until it reaches a powder that is prepared in the tea.

Today, the matcha is not only used as an infusion , but it is also used for the preparation of desserts and other derived products.Its antioxidant benefits have allowed the product to be inserted in the taste of the West, where it gradually gains more followers.It is energizing because it has caffeine and it is great for your health.

This August 30 will be held the first Matcha Fest within the facilities of Rooibos Tea Shop. For the first edition of the festival, there is going to be the participation of chefs and bakers such as Itamar Corona, Xio Esponda of Cupcake Company, Sara Leon and Lizbeth Gaxiola. All of them pastry enthusiasts!
