Hey! Welcome to CC!

I do not know if you are aware, but green tea is also called matcha.

I found a matcha frosting recipe for you, abstracted off the website

www.matchasource.com :

Matcha Buttercream Frosting

1 stick butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons half and half or light cream
1 tablespoon matcha powder
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted

1. Mix matcha in with the light cream to make a paste.
2. Beat butter briefly, scrape bowl.
3. Add the sifted powdered sugar and matcha paste. Beat until smooth.

Assemble
Smooth a thin layer of buttercream over the cupcakes and top with a decoration.

Note: The cute, pink royal icing flowers were bought at a local cake supply store.

Please let me know if you like it.

Matcha is nothing more than finely ground green tea.

It can easily be found online, or in any Asian grocery store.

I buy Matcha powder at a grocery store in China Town. I have never made a matcha frosting, i usually add it to my white cake batter. Recently I used Matcha au lait mix instead of the matcha powder because its cheaper.

the matcha powder is just ground tea but the matcha au lait comes in a box that has little pouches and it has some milk powder and sugar. it gives a less bitter taste.

if you like matcha lattes you could just add hot water to the mix and enjoy.

personally I hate the matcha taste but it's one of my best selling cakes, it goes really well with coconut.

Not all green tea is called matcha.

Matcha is a Japanese green tea powder, and there are different brands with different qualities and nuances in flavor. The tea bushes are covered so the tea for matcha is shade-grown.

I do grean tea cuppies with pomegranate-cream cheese frosting. I make matcha latte (fron scratch), green tea cheesecake, etc.

It's very versatile.
