Matcha green tea baking mix at Trader Joe's

Looked interesting. Anyone tried it yet?

  1. I got some the other week--its delicious...after eating it, I immediately went and bought 3 more boxes, plus one for a gift! I topped it with buttercream icing, but instead of adding milk to the butter and sugar, I added honey; it complemented the green tea very nicely. The package shows the cake as brown, but it is actually a fairly bright green, be warned.

      Thanks- I'm headed there tomorrow so I'll try it out!

    2. I hated it..I literally threw it out after one bite! I did not hide the taste with any frosting...just ate it as it came from the oven....
      different people..different tastes!

      1. If the matcha mix is anything like the matcha powder I got from TJ's, no wonder it's bad.
