Antioxidant-rich matcha is the perfect accompaniment to your morning meal. These green tea pancakes will even win over the pickiest of children, who won’t be able to resist the cool green color. They won’t know they’re eating something so healthy! Pancakes are hearty and filling enough to keep you going until lunch. If you’re short on time, substitute your favorite maple syrup for the yogurt topping.

Pancake Batter

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp unrefined sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp matcha green tea powder
  • 2 tbsp hemp protein powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp butter, plus more as needed


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup banana chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins

Chocolate Syrup

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil


  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the topping ingredients, except the Greek yogurt. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the egg, milk, sugar and coconut oil. With a wire whisk, mix until combined. Add the brown rice flour, matcha green tea powder, hemp powder and baking powder. Mix until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Melt the butter in a large cast iron skillet or griddle over medium heat. To make a pancake, ladle about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the skillet. Pour enough batter to make 1 or 2 more pancakes at a time, taking care to keep them evenly spaced apart.
  4. Cook until bubbles break the surface of the pancakes and the sides are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. With a spatula, flip the pancake and cook 1-2 minutes more on the other side. Transfer them to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the skillet as needed.
  5. In the meantime, to prepare the chocolate syrup, add the ingredients to a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds to one minute or until the coconut oil is melted and the mixture is warm.
  6. To assemble the pancakes, place them on a serving plate and add a dollop of Greek yogurt to each pancake followed by 1-2 tablespoons of the nut mixture. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of the chocolate syrup over the nuts and serve while the pancakes are still warm.

Note:You can freeze cooked pancakes for up to 2 months.

International Tea Day

Established in 2005, International Tea Day brings awareness to the tea workers’ contributions to the tea world and their working conditions. It has been observed annually on December 15.

Well, if you’re a business owner I would steer away from using this day as just another marketing opportunity. As someone in the marketing industry, I wanted to offer some other options that businesses, tea related or not, can take into consideration if they would like to honour International Tea Day.

2019 Pu’erh from Western Vendors are More Expensive Than Ever. Three Ways to Look at Price.

December 14, 2019 0 Comments

I’ve been updating a spreadsheet on pu’erh prices on release for the past few years in order to get an idea of tea being offered to western consumers and any possible trends. The well-known popular narrative is that fresh pu’erh prices have gone up and this certainly seems true in the data. Last year the prices looked about the same as the previous year. And when and how much the price has gone up depends on how we look at this and there’s a handful of different ways to look at the data and options available (I do three here).
