Green tea ice cream is a popular Japanese ice cream flavor & perfect as a sweet & refreshing dessert after a traditional Japanese meal.

The name "green tea ice cream" is slightly deceptive, because the ice cream itself is not made from tea, but rather from matcha powder. Sometimes, the names "green tea ice cream" & "matcha ice cream" are used interchangeably in the West, but in Japan, "green tea ice cream" is almost always referred to as "matcha ice cream."

Matcha powder is a fine bright green powder of special green tea leaves which have been ground. Essentially, matcha is green tea leaves. Matcha powder differs from green tea because in foods that use matcha contain the actual tea leaves themselves, but green tea-infused foods are simply water infused with the flavor of the tea leaves.

Rest assured, despite the technical differences between green tea & matcha powder, this recipe for green tea (matcha) ice cream will result in a delicious frozen Japanese dessert.
