  1. Ahhhhh, thank you so much for the explanation! I never knew (and never remembered to look it up) why there was the word MATCHA sometimes before the words GREAN TEA. lol. Now I know thanks to you!!
    I have to confess that even though I like drinking green tea, I’ve never like grean tea (or matcha green tea) desserts. I think they have a beautiful colour, indeed, but just never liked the taste. I’m looking through your list of ingredients though, and they sound so good that I’m sure they transform it into something delicious! 😉

  2. That’s a new one on me! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday – watch out for bears in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I saw one on the Appalachian trail – good job I wasn’t cooking sausages at the time 😉

    • That’s one of my biggest fears when hiking, MD. But I also have no trouble talking really loudly to scare them away. I grew up around bears and they really just want food… And sometimes that means us. As for the chia pudding, it’s a nice alternative to chocolate sometimes. Be well, MD!

  3. This pudding looks so healthy and delicious! I love the use of maple syrup as a sweetener, and I love using chia seeds. I need to check out matcha. It sounds like it has wonderful properties. I hope you are having a great trip!

      • That’s just what I was thinking! 🙂 I will have to look for it next time I go to whole foods or someplace similar. I have way too much fun in those kinds of places!!! 🙂

  4. Love to read about the work/art behind growing matcha. Thoughtfully grown food has its price, as always. Hope you´re having a wonderful holiday. That scenery looks calm and green and relaxing – the photo really makes me want to be there. But do me a favour and don´t stop talking loudly! We need you here.
    And how funny, on the less dangerous side, you might have bumped into Michelle.SMall world 🙂

    • What a beautiful comment Sabine. Thank you! You’re right about thoughtfully grown food, and it’s price. We’re having a great time. I want to meet Michelle. She sent me an old pasta maker last year and we have a connection. So random. I hope you’re doing well. Xo

  5. I really appreciate learning more about matcha. I have a packet of it and make tea with honey and half and half…a very indulgent drink! I like the sound of this chia pudding very much.

    I’m so glad you’re relaxing and enjoying your time away. I visited relatives in Charleston when I was about 12 years old and still remember what a gracious, beautiful city it is. Safe travels to you!

    • Thanks, Hannah. I’m excited to use matcha in more dishes. That drink sounds so good. I’ll definitely give it a shot. I why to Charleston at about 12 too with my grandparents, but it’s so cool to come back as an adult. After that we went to Savannah, which is a beautiful city, drove to Asheville, NC, then into the smoky mountains. Checking out the American South. Be well. It’s always great to hear from you. Xo

  6. What fun! Matcha has always intrigued me, but have yet to use it in the kitchen. Your pudding looks the perfect place to start 🙂 Breakfast or dessert, yes one easily becomes the other! Like how you think.

  7. I have a friend who is into anything about tea and healthy eating. I’m passing this on to her as I know she happens to have all the ingredients. Hope you are having a great time on your travels.
