Green tea GANG. Anyone with a shred of taste can tell you that matcha is truly the bomb.com. Maybe it's the colour that creates some suspicion - since as a society we've reserved green for goblins, garbage monsters on Sesame Street and vegetables we avoided like the plague.
But don't worry y'all, no need to fear. We're grown ass adults that fully understand that green is good - and extra yummy when mixed in with some delicious matcha.
You can get it in a smoothie, softserve, cakes and creams. We hunted down the best matcha food restaurants in the city to satisfy that sweet, green tooth.
