 Every once in awhile I come across a recipe or drink that calls for this green tea powder like substance.  I have always been curious to try it.  As a coffee/caffeine lover and addict, I thought it might be nice to switch it up some days. So, while at Whole Foods the other night, I found a small packet of the matcha green tea and decide to give it a whirl.  This stuff can be a bit pricey so I wanted to make sure I liked it first (the small packet was $9.99).  Anyways....
Here is the brand I purchased.  Starting with the milk - I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk for everything - I heated it to a preferred temperature (microwave or stove top depending on your time limitations in the morning)

 I added just one teaspoon of the powder.  It has a strong flavor so definitely measure it out.  I frothed my milk first because, well, all drinks are better with frothed milk right? makes it fancy. 
 Stir it in until you see no more powder and enjoy! Possibly with a sugar stick from Trader Joes? 
(It ended up being sweet for me so I didn't use any sugar after all, but it sure looks pretty)
 I decided I really like this new, east concoction so the next day I made it iced!
