Sipping on a vibrant, green, creamy, sweet matcha latte on a summer day is pretty much the epitome of satisfaction. It can be convenient to just pop by the closest coffee chain and order one. However, in doing so, you may be doing some damage to your pocket book and consuming some extra calories you didn't anticipate. Luckily, its easy to craft up your very own matcha latte for less... with the added bonus of having control over your ingredients!
Why drink matcha? This powdered green tea from Japan has the highest concentration of catechins and EGCG available in a beverage. Usually, we steep tea leaves and discard them. Here, we are ingesting the entire leaf!
