It’s spring! It’s spring!

I don’t know if the weather knows it yet because it’s still raining pretty hard here every few days. But it definitely looks like spring with so many pretty flowers blooming.

I was just at Golden Gate Park, and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. <3

Today, I wanted to try something new and different.

Have you ever been to a Korean BBQ restaurant? There’s one called Gen in San Jose, which is all you can eat. You get to cook your own food and order whatever you want from the menu. What I really loved was that they had green tea salt for you to season your meat and vegetables with.The green tea in the salt is relatively subtle, but you can definitely taste hints of it.

I loved it so much, I knew that I had to try to make my own at home.

So ta da… matcha green tea sea salt.

This matcha green tea sea salt is super easy to make. It takes just two ingredients: matcha green tea powder and sea salt. Simple, right?

It gives your food a little something extra. While this recipe gives just a hint of green tea, you can always add more of the green tea powder for a stronger flavor profile.

Grind the sea salt to your liking. If you like the sea salt fine, then grind it until it’s fine. If you like your sea salt coarse, then grind it coarse.

Add the sea salt into a small jar. Next, add the matcha green tea powder. Close the lid to the jar, and shake until the sea salt and matcha green tea powder are well incorporated.
