Matcha is a most prized tea for its health benefits and belongs to the oldest varieties of Japanese teas. This queen of green tea is part of the so-called 'shadow teas', teas that Japanese farmers grow in the dark (thanks to the 'kabuse' method). This heavenly Citrus, Almond, and Matcha Tea Cake combines this flavorful Japanese tea with a blend of citrus juices for a lovely flavor that pairs beautifully with the rich texture of this almond flour cake.

I removed the seeds and flesh of the squash with a plastic spoon. I find it easier to dig with the sharp, plastic edge reducing the risk of tearing the side of the flesh, and I do not have to handle the squash as much. The stew was tasty, and I liked eating the squash down in bites of the stew.
