It’s a classic dessert - but at Kenko Tea we like to put a modern twist on things! So for this week’s delicious recipe we’ve gotMatcha Pavlova by the awesome Dinesh Rao from Malaysia.

These Matcha Pavlovas are really simple to make, perfectly blending the earthy bittersweet flavour and green colour of Matcha with the light, fluffy meringue we all know and love.

Served with whipped cream and your choice of fruits like berries, these pavlovas can be kept for up to a week stored in a container at room temperature.

Green Tea Matcha Pavlova


  • 150g egg white
  • 300g castor sugar
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar / cornflour
  • ½ tsp vinegar
  • 3 tsp matcha powder (The amount you use depends on how dark the colour and how strong the taste you desire)


  1. Preheat the oven to 100C
  2. Whisk the egg white in a clean bowl until frothy
  3. Add ¼ of the sugar and continue to whisk until soft peaks form
  4. Continue adding the remaining sugar, a bit at a time, to ensure each addition is well incorporated. Whisk until it’s a stiff smooth meringue (If there are still sugar crystals visible, continue to whisk a bit more)
  5. Sieve in the matcha powder and cream of tartar
  6. Fold the mix with a metal spoon; then mix in the vinegar. Be careful not to overmix
  7. Pipe the meringue on the lined baking sheet to form the desired shape, using your choice of nozzle

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
