Green Tea Noodle Salad

Think of the gentle aroma of green tea, that hint of flavor threading through every noodle in our Green Tea Noodle Salad. This recipe is inspired by the East, where green tea has been enjoyed for centuries. But here’s our little twist: we’ve brought the distinct taste of green tea into our noodles by boiling them in tea-infused water. The result? A unique flavor and a vibrant green color that makes our dish stand out.
