Vanilla and Nutmeg Matcha Latte recipe

Unlike other green tea leaves that are steeped then strained, with matcha tea you’re actually consuming dried and powdered leaves, which means this tea is packed with antioxidants and offers a sustained energy boost. It’s a great alternative to coffee, as it gives you a caffeine buzz without the subsequent crash.
