I got a green tea latte from Starbucks today. This is the straightest I have probably ever had matcha and I should probably be eating something with it because I’m getting a little caffeine headache. It tastes really good though and I’m taking it easy. I’m just not used to it.
Tazo® Green Tea Latte
Sweetened matcha green tea with steamed milk.
The Japanese tea ceremony emphasizes the virtues of humility, restraint and simplicity, its practice governed by a set of highly ritualized actions. But this smooth and creamy matcha-based beverage can be enjoyed any way you like. So by all means, slurp away if you want to.
Did you know?
Only the last sip of matcha should be slurped at a Japanese tea ceremony to let the host know you have finished and to show your appreciation.
