The texture and flavor were just like store bought ice cream. I added 2 tbsp of matcha and a 3rd yolk (as suggested by another user) and the matcha taste was nice and strong. This had the same m...

Please read reviews! I put 3 or so tablespoons of matcha. One is not enough and is a waste. I've had matcha ice cream in japan and if you want it to taste authentic you could get away with 5 ta...

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.

This was a very simple and easy recipe, I also used the same base to make coffee ice cream, this is now going to be my guide for all my future ice creams

Perfectly strong matcha flavor and creaminess.

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.

Really great ice cream, real good flavor. in the future I may modify the recipe to make it less fat, more healthy of a desert.
