Meet Matcha: Your New Favorite Flavor

Whether you’re in the city or by the beach, tea lovers everywhere are going green with Matcha tea. A long standing tradition in Japanese culture, Matcha tea is processed from green tea leaves that have been ground into a soft powder and then sifted and whisked with hot water. Matcha originated in Japanese tea ceremonies from the 12th century and has become widely popular thanks to its health benefits, unique flavor and distinct look.
