Delicious. I recommend doubling the matcha powder for tea lovers and adding an extra egg yolk.

I only used 1/2 a cup of sugar, and it was still a little too sweet. I woul use more match next time.

Definitely add extra Matcha powder for a more intense flavor. I followed the reviews and added an extra egg yolk as well and it seemed to work out well.
