Matcha Latte

Updated: Sep 22, 2019

Are you jet lagged or sleepy but not a coffee fan? Cold refreshing matcha latte maybe the answer.


Traveling to another country is fun. With the fun comes time zone difference and jet lag. This jet lag that I’m experiencing however does not want to let up. Somehow it is as stubborn as ever. I needed something to help me stay awake but I am not a huge fan of coffee as I am a tea drinker.


So, the next best thing that I could think of is matcha as it has higher levels of caffeine compared to tea. To tame the taste of matcha, I added homemade almond milk, ice & sugar syrup. I’d like to think that it somehow helped since I love the icy cold taste of matcha latte.


Have you had matcha latte?
