Just like a daily cup of joe, Matcha contains caffeine to kick off your day with a boost. Avid coffee-drinkers would have experienced jitters or cold sweat, switching your usual coffee order to a Matcha latte makes a great alternative.
The process of making Matcha powder is much more intricate than one might think. And no, you can’t just rip a green tea bag open. Uji Matcha powder are finely ground-up green tea leaves that are grown and harvested with great care, to achieve a rich flavour with a balance of both bitter and sweet.
Have it iced on a warm sunny day or hot for a little comfort, it’s a real treat regardless. If you can’t afford a flight to Japan, here’s our top 5 spots to get your Matcha Latte fix in Klang Valley:
