Matcha Magic in Six Steps at Matcha Box

February 13, 2017

One of our favorite drinks in the city is the Matcha Latte from Matcha Box on West 3rd Street. Matcha Box is an independent purveyor of premium matcha, a refined powder form of green tea with benefits that include powerful antioxidants, improved alertness and mental clarity, better metabolism and, some claim, weight loss.

We visited the team at Matcha Box to learn how to make a matcha tea latte. The verdict: it may look easy, but it’s best left up to the pros. Also: the drink was warm and sweet and comforting and absolutely a must-have.
