What Can I Do With Jasmine Matcha?

Ingredient Questions

Q: I was recently given some Japanese matcha green tea powder by a friend who knows I love jasmine green tea — emphasis on the jasmine which I find takes the edge off of the green tea harshness. I'm a little intimidated by this straight-up powder and need ideas for how to use it! I have read on this site about the Green Tea Milkshake but wondering what other ideas readers have. Can I use it in cooking? Thanks!

Editor: Marla, here's how to whisk a bowl of matcha, to get you started. But you could also use it in green tea ice cream and pudding.

Readers, what else would you suggest?
