Matcha green tea. You may have seen the name at your local coffee shop or health store. This green treat has skyrocketed in popularity recently with matcha lattes, teas, smoothies, desserts and even matcha shots showing up everywhere you look!
My first experience with matcha was back in 2009 when I was a barista at Starbucks, during our training we were required to try all the beverages to learn the recipe and be able to describe it to a customer. I was told we would be making a “Green Tea Latte,” and when my trainer handed me the cup, I was a bit taken back by the bright green drink that was presented to me.
