Matcha Green Tea Latte




This weekend it is teas and coffees, last summer I discovered Matcha Tea, I do prefer the black over the green, but they are both so full of nutrients that it is something to add to your daily routine. I like to take black matcha tea, mix it in Soy milk and add ice for a tasty nutritious summer drink.
