I was definitely late in jumping on the matcha bandwagon! I didn’t understand the hype and figured green tea bags immersed in hot water were sufficient. Oh boy was I completely wrong!
Matcha not only has various health benefits, but it also has a robust flavor that comes close to consuming a cup of coffee. Coming from a coffee-obsessed individual, that’s saying a whole lot. Perfect for the afternoon slumps, this latte can be made warm or over ice. The mint just makes it even more refreshing. Enjoy!
