Matcha contains L-theanine, a naturally occurring amino acid that’ll give you a steady stream of energy and keep you focused but relaxed all day long. This revered type of green tea is a gentler source of caffeine, plus is packed with antioxidants. Of course you can enjoy matcha with hot water alone, but this slightly sweet, creamy latte is even better with a dairy free milk and natural sweetener.
* Our Matcha Latte can be prepared with or without a blender!
