Matcha & Matcha Latte


I just realized that I didn't do a write-up on this beautiful beverage. Matcha is a love or hate affair; either you love it or you despise it. There's no in-between. Lol! As you know, I love matcha, but my daughter is completely obsessed with it. That prompted me to buy an actual matcha brewing kit.


Depth of flavors on its own...


I include the steps down below to brew some proper matcha. When it comes to ceremonial grade, it is best to enjoy the beverage on its own without any added sugar. Kinda like an espresso. And when it comes to latte, I prefer adding some white chocolate. Keep in mind to use culinary grade if you wanna make some matcha latte.
