Green Tea Latte Recipe

Green tea lattes aren’t made with green tea. Instead they are made with matcha, a fine green tea powder made from shade-grown tealeaves. The lack of sunlight results in a tealeaf that is a vibrant green color and rich in flavor.

Green Tea Shopping Tip

Look for high-quality green teas in Asian markets or specialty tea stores. Loose-leaf blends tend to be higher quality than grocery store brands.
