Matcha tea offers a plethora of benefits, but if I’m honest with you, it tastes a little too much like grass to me. While I can’t get it down as a hot tea, I do love it as an iced coconut matcha latte. I can drink one every day!
Matcha is simply ground green tea leaves that are whisked directly into your beverage and drank, as opposed to a green tea bag, which is just steeped and removed.
Like all whole and natural food, the quality and taste of matcha vary extensively from brand to brand. So I encourage you to try various brands to find the one you like. Personally, I like these Japanese Matcha teas. Soukou is great for iced matcha lattes.
