The world is constantly changing, but our coffee orders remain the same. Sometimes it can be hard to get out and grab your favourite latte from your neighbourhood cafe.
The prices at coffee shops can be high, but what if you had the opportunity to make everything at home with the same type of quality— including your matcha latte — instead?
Matcha lattes are all the hype right now, and they are extremely easy to make at home. Matcha, a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves, has many proven health benefits, including reducing anxiety, boosting fat-burning, enhancing brain function, and supporting your immune system.
The powdered green tea is rich in nutrients and antioxidants and gives a slow-release caffeine boost throughout the day.
We've selected 13 matcha products that every matcha lover should have handy to create the ultimate matcha lattes.

We don't just have to drink our matcha. We can eat it too! This cookbook offers 50 different recipes that help you create matcha smoothies, teas, cakes, soups and savoury dishes. According to this cookbook, one glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content. But there is so much more you can do with this amazing ingredient. Think matcha sushi salad, matcha chicken, ginger dumplings, breakfast smoothie bowls or a dark chocolate and matcha layer cake.
