Matcha Latte Love


I am obsessed with matcha lattes.  I first discovered them when I was in Korea.  Before that trip, I had never seen them before so I was amazed that there were cafes devoted to matcha.  I love the nutty flavor and the creamy texture.  Matcha also happens to be good for your health because unlike tea in a bag, matcha is made by grinding the green tea leaf into a fine powder so it has 10x the nutrients as regular green tea.  I was so happy when I found out that a new cafe opened up in my neighborhood (West Village) called Chalait and their specialty is their matcha green tea drinks.  I went there with a girlfriend on Saturday afternoon and it was buzzing with energy.  It seems the secrets out and other New Yorkers are just as obsessed as I am.
