Who makes the best green tea ice cream? Haagen Dazs is the only brand I can find around here, and it's not so good. While in Hawaii, I had a brand that I really liked at Genki Sushi, but I can't remember the name. I've been craving good green tea ice cream recently, but can't find any. Since I have an ice cream machine, this raises a question: Does green tea ice cream have to be made with matcha? Have you ever had it made from regular green tea that has been powdered? If so, does it look/taste the same? I ask because I don't have an Matcha, and it isn't easy to find, unless I order online. Is this a necessary component of green tea ice cream, or can I try to use regular loose green tea which I powder myself?
